"Sound Sculpture: A Poet in New York"

Beatriz Albuquerque, 2012


Duration: 18m 54s


The NYC based Portuguese visual and performance artist Beatriz Albuquerque
was challenged to create a sound piece for The Mews Radio Programme Series
inspired by the theme of *silence*.
Her response to this invitation comes in the "shape" of a "Sound Sculpture:
A Poet in New York",
coming in continuous to her sculpture score sound series and her Project "A
Poet in New York" that started in 2010.
This sound piece is a recording of a 3-D sculpture score with 1 inch.
The sculpture is an exact proportional replica of the artist's body in the
contra torso position (a reference to classical Greek sculptural form),
while wearing a costume part of her performance "A Poet in New York".
