"Audible Deterrence"
Byron Dean

Opening: Wednesday 14 March, 6-8pm
Dates: 14-31 March 2012

On a daily basis in a city centre one continually encounters soundscapes abundant with sonic information. Some of these sounds are recognisable and seemingly useful, others are processed on a subtle level, and are effective in modulating the mood, behaviour and impulses of individuals. ‘Audible Deterrence’ is a sound-installation that focuses on deliberate applications of sound in public and commercially built environments. It examines, transposes and re-purposes the sounds that repel, invite, mask, convey meaning and discomfort. The installation explores the spatial possibilities of the gallery space through a multi-speaker configuration articulating a virtual environment created using FMOD, software usually used for designing sound in games. This simulated soundscape re-defines the spatial and experiential co-ordinates of the original sound-sources, positioning them metaphorically, politically and three-dimensionally.

Byron Dean is an emerging sound and time-based artist and experimental musician. He is interested in exploring built and natural environments, navigating the complexities that arise when subjective experience is interrupted by narrative and musical intervention, displacement, and re-constituted or re-imagined sites.
