The last issue of the French magazine TACET edited by Yvan Etienne, Bertrand Gauguet and Matthieu Saladin and published by the Haute école des arts du Rhin deals with the topic of Sound Space.
As mentioned in the editorial this issue of Tacet could be considered as an itinerary, proposing to trace sound space through its study, allowing each individual reader to wander through the issue, configuring as many possible itineraries as there are readers.
I am glad to contribute to this issue of Tacet together to the rest of the authors: Alvin Lucier, Kirsi Peltomäki, Michael Asher, Seth Cluet, Jeffrey Mansfield, Michael Gallagher, Arthur Stidfolde, Éric La Casa & Jean-Luc Guionnet, Christina Kubisch, Maryanne Amacher, Paul Panhuysen, Douglas Kahn, Emmanuel Holterbach, Christian Wolff, Paul Hegarty, Ivana Miladinovic Prica and Tom Mays.
My article, Spatiality and Public takes up a problem of definition that has been often debated in the field of Sound Art and moves it to the field of Public Sound Art: What’s the role of the latter, as a group of works created with sound in the public space, in contemporary art? Are we enriching the field by validating this expression? The paper addresses these questions at the same time it focuses on ‘spatiality’ a concept used by Edward Soja to describe the socially-produced spaces, that sound sound creation tackles within the public space.
