SOUND = OLANIYI EXPERIMENTAL SOUND ARCHIVE / ALBUMS
Sound Design Formula = This archive of acoustic architectural experiments reflect upon the role of ethnomusicology, biological sonic feedback, and conceptual poetry around themes of environmentalism. Agbo-Ola developed sound works that questions how different epistemologies from a range of diverse cultures relate, perceive, and become connected to or a part of their local ecological systems.
In addition, Agbo-Ola’s experimental composition of orchestral and spatial gradients aims to mimic the multi-layered atmospheric acoustic conversations between botanical, geological, and unseen environmental elements. Through the act of composing: each environmental sound equation speaks, as an exchange component within the wider context of sound observation, designed for stimulating the mental ecology through cognitive audio sensations
Design Components = Voice of Volcanoes + Cracks in Mango Seed Hairs + Whale Lungs
Architectural Function = Meditation Spatial Artefacts
