Yuri Suzuki Furniture Music


10 April 2018

In Disegno #16, the sound designer and artists Yuri Suzuki premiered Furnishing Silences, an exploration of sound and music as a functional element in a space, as informed by the work of the 20th-century composer Erik Satie.

Developed as part of Suzuki's research for a new exhibition at the Stanley Picker Gallery, Furniture Music, Furnishing Silences provided food for thought about the lack of care with which sound is treated in our environments.

To mark the opening of Furniture Music, Disegno has now collaborated with Suzuki and Stanley Picker Gallery on a series of workshops and talks which explore issues surrounding sound design in further depth. On Wednesday 11 April, Suzuki will be joined in conversation at the gallery by the compose Matthew Herbert. The event will start at 5pm, and tickets are free. To reserve a place at the talk, please RSVP here.

In anticipation of the talk, Disegno is delighted to share a film made by Disegno's regular collaborator Alice Masters. In the film, Suzuki explains his ethos surrounding sound design and provides a snapshot of the work on display as part of Furniture Music.
