Microphones will be installed at locations in the surrounding visual panorama of the Dogana that will transmit (via UHF wireless systems)in real time to loudspeakers placed on the facade to create a living sound map. Some sounds, such as bells and ship horns, will be audible at all of the microphone positions. Due to natural speed of sound delays (1000 feet = 1 sec.), this will result in real time multiple soundings of the bells and the horns, transforming these recurring acoustic events into shimmering multiple echoes floating as a virtualreality on the familiar views of Venice.
