Three Spaces in Mid-Air

John Young

Three Spaces in Mid-Air has been performed in Brussels, Columbus, Nice, Sheffield, Udine and Vienna…

Form, writes Nicholas Bourriaud, is ‘structural unity imitating a world.’ I have responded to this idea with Three Spaces in Mid-Air, which is designed as a continuous work in three discrete sections. Each explores the idea of spectral space through interaction and coalescence of sonic strata, as three-dimensional objects ‘suspended’ before the listener. The work’s individual sections also address the compression of form, each aiming to embody the atmosphere of a self-contained ‘world’ — evoking implications of direction, tension and release while balancing states of stasis and motion.


Three Spaces in Mid-Air was premiered on June 21, 2017 at the Project(ion) Room in Brussels (Belgium).
