one site, counting is an experimental setting fusing aspects of Martijn Tellinga’s earlier investigations into self evolving durational pieces and resonance tuning. The piece is the result of his pondering over questions of the musicality of space and spatial animation of musical matter, as well as his ongoing interest in how experience of place and surrounding comes about through resonance. 'one site, counting' attempts to explore resonance of site as an oscillation caused between acoustic properties, musical interpretation and narrative structure.

Following a partly poetic, partly scientific reading of the acoustic signature of a given space, resonances are made palpable as an extension of its architecture. Carefully mounted speaker drivers projecting electronic pure waves at resonant frequencies, cause the room to naturally amplify the tones and hum at its intrinsic pitches in response. In this slowly shifting acoustical space, highly position-specific occurrences are situated.

The installation seeks to make the sensorial traversable as a performative plane as well, including the resonant frequencies into a score for musicians that visit the gallery on a daily basis, unscheduled and unannounced. Guided by the specific harmonic bearing of their instrument, they will perform open geometries of quiet sustained pitches hovering around the resonant tones, drawing spatial musical gestures that instill body and location into the inching sounding space.

Following a similar self-organising routine, the unfolding of the installation is captured in audio and video recordings. Fragments selected from an expanding archive of documentation are played back into the space, layering the visual and acoustic narrative of the piece as it takes place.
