Maryanne Amacher: City-Links



the works of the City-Links series are investigations in the relationship between music and space. Maryanne Amacher used the architectural features of buildings or sites to create intensely dramatic sound experiences, exploring the noise-related qualities of sites, such as their fundamental or resonant tones, and their dependence on conditions such as climate, weather, time of day and other, sometimes extremely subtle, changing aspects of a site. She wrote: “My interest is not in sampling sound effects, but in creating a sense of the hidden, interior places within the city: patterns of harmony, dimension, obscured in daytime, clearly heard, existing most magically at night.” Amacher’s sound works were aiming at space and the human perceptual organs as resonant bodies, experiencing perception as a social process.
