In Techno Apostrophe Studio BAM reflect upon their research into the shifting boundaries of geographic and climatic zones in Chile: locations where individual experience and the ownership of place are submerged in stupefying layers of local, global, bio and geo imaginaries.

Turning to the analog of electronic music as a world making technology, they explore the power relations that inform experience as we succumb to environmental intoxication.

Let's go non-local. Let's get out of phase. Let's dip our feet into the sludge.
Studio BAM (Burke Aldunate Murillo) is a sonic architecture studio based between London, Amsterdam and Santiago de Chile. It was formed in 2018 by British musician Tom Burke and Chilean architect Carla Aldunate Murillo.

Studio BAM is a research based practice that carries out extensive fieldwork with communities and institutions. As a practice, they believe in the power of sound and architecture to heighten experiences of place and displacement. By building theatrical installations their intention is to take people somewhere, to think by being, an awareness of the role of the imagination in the construction of place.

Since late 2018 they have been investigating desertification at the borders of the Atacama desert. Their research focuses upon imaginaries of extreme geographies in the Anthropocene and aims to explore complex layers of global, local, real and imaginary cause and effect.

Tom Burke studied English Literature and Theatre Studies at Leeds University before going on to a career in music playing in the bands Official Secrets Act and Citizens! In 2017 he joined the MA Design of Experiences at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam.

Carla Aldunate Murillo studied architecture at Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile and at Roma Tre. She has worked for architectural practices in Rio de Janeiro, Santiago and London and has contributed to architecture exhibitions at MOMA, NYC and Centro de Extension, UC.
