Nevertheless, the main aim is to discover for the spectators the possibility to hear old sounds in silence or appreciate the unknown silence in the noise. The recording of the sounds, those disorganized, gives us the coverage of the particular space. The space does not exist on its own but is complemented by the sounds. Without them the space is incomplete. The sounds can evoke in us feelings, memories. Sometimes they make us think but we usually do not perceive them. Nevertheless, when we try to perceive them, we can discover the complexity and curiosity of the world. We are speaking about the accidental sounds which are created accidentally when performing more important activities on which we are more focused. We can often hear sounds whose sources we do not see and which we cannot even identify. If there are more sounds, which is common in the city surround, they mingle, mix and lay on one another. A sound mass or sound wall of unique structure can be created or we can overhear the particular sounds which create interesting confrontations or consonances. There are places characteristic by its sound surround and we suppose that the place owes its uniqueness to the sounds occurring there. As well as the sun rises and sets, the particular sound surrounds change in time. If we accept them in their changeability, it means that we perceive them fully and we can “read” in them. We realize that they influence our perception of what we observe in the given place and what we experience. Sound surround is a source of distinguished sound senses and aesthetic experience as well as a countryside is a never ending source of fascinating natural images. That is why we speak about sound landscapes. We can record the sounds of natural origin, transport them, quote them, isolate them, transform them or deform them. We can also mix them, combine them with music or leave them intact. We can also create artificial sound surrounds using common or sophisticated modern technology. We can create new sounds, increase their volume or decrease it. We can also look for sounds, abstract them or give the different meaning and show them in different contexts. Given space that is supposed to serve certain purpose can become complete using appropriate sounds. We do not have to wait for its utility but it can exist on its own. The exhibiting artists project into the concrete spaces their imagination composed sound surrounds and their deal with their spatial and acoustic characteristics. They prepare petty musical happenings and record sounds in the terrain in order to put them in new contexts. These artists also wander in order to provide their listeners with sound travel reports. They also create new sound objects and they record the noise and silence in their surrounding and generate new sounds as well. These brave artists realize various acoustic phenomena, they discover sounds resounding way deep beyond regular hearing as well as the sound vibrating and resounding. They exhibit sound, sounds in space, sound surrounds … The exhibition will take place in Ostrava and Opava at various venues simultaneously.
