p(n,r) = n!/(n-r)! a new sound installation by T. St-Pierre and P.-A. Gauthier

“The number of permutations for n=6 possible choices, selected r=2 at a time.” Through this miniature sound installation, Gauthier and St-Pierre revisit the idea and culture of the individual listening station. In fact, they expose listeners to approximately 10 Gigabytes of compositions and improvised sounds, totalling 20 hours of material improvised in tandem via different, more or less mastered, electronic and digital devices. At CLARK, audience members can listen individually or in groups by combining audio tracks played on six separate earphones. In this project, the act of listening, the aesthetics of listening through the accumulation of sound particles, and combinatorics are substitutes for the act of composition. Presented at Centre Clark, Montréal, September 3, October 11, 2015. Excerpts available on sound cloud:L
