sound exploration of a detail of the surface of Mars

It now appears that the interplanetary journeys we may have dreamed of will only be made by machines, which leaves us nostalgic for our imaginary “space conquest” dreams of a bygone era. We now have to accept that if any exploration of these new worlds continues, we will only experience it vicariously.

Sound reveries of trips we won’t go on (Western Arabia Terra) is an installation that enables visitors to take part in a remote “sound exploration” of a detail of the surface of Mars by moving a cursor on a satellite image using two manual commands. This ad-hoc “reading” of Martian terrain determines the production of musical sounds by means of an analogue synthesiser with adjustable settings, which generates sound aesthetics that take us straight back to mid 20th-century sci-fi movies.
