The Loggia

Exhibition banner for Adam Chodzko Proxigean Tide Tate St Ives

Test Tone for Landscape 2005 consists of five tones, each of which play for varying durations from five speakers positioned around the Loggia. The work exists as a kind of kit to be transposed to various places or situations in order, the artist suggests, to ‘harmonise’ a space. The tones are made up of domestic sounds recorded around the artist’s house. As in much of Chodzko’s work a usevalue or purpose is implied, but it remains unclear quite how we might interpret, apply, or even recognise the results of this strange acoustic test.
