Robert Curgenven (1974) is a composer/sound artist drawing on the physicality of sound - not just the physical impact on the body but the way in which the auditory can shape our perception of space and the flow of time, from architectural to open space. His works span pipe organ through to feedback, immersive resonances via turntables and custom-made vinyl, as well as carefully detailed field recordings from remote areas in Australia where he lived for many years.

Climata by Robert Curgenven, released 29 April 2016 1. A1 (remaster) - under foreign topologies. 2. A2 (remaster) - framed by the edge of the earth. 3. A3 (remaster) - en el turbulento infinito, la duración del tiempo y más allá. Using the slightest of means (two custom oscillators and a portable speaker) Curgenven’s recording process uses two quiet tones tuned to the space to move the volume of air in the Skyspace through the aperture – bringing the space inside and outside the Skyspace into oscillation via the subtle physicality of sound. Through this process he tunes the air in the Skyspace relative to the meteorological conditions and the specific local sound outside - creating an interplay between the weather and the sound’s movement through these adjacent spaces. The air oscillating through the ceiling aper.
