about

The essence of the piece is a set of devices that translate the progression of the sun into the spatiality of sound. Each device consists of a solar panel which actuates an oscillator which then produces a sine wave through a speaker. The amount of light picked up by the solar panel regulates the volume – the objects only play a sine wave when exposed to strong light (e.g. sunlight).

Each participant who enters the space may choose a location for a new device and faces the collective sound of the sine waves produced by the irradiated objects which have already been placed. The sine waves produced by each participant accumulate over the exhibition period of the piece.

The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA (SWO) is a project that works exclusively with sine waves that was launched in 2002 by Ken Furudate, Kazuhiro Jo, Daisuke Ishida and Mizuki Noguchi. ”The single sine waves, which the participants each play freely without a score or conductor, rise and intricately interfere with each other like thin strings, and ultimately create an ocean of sine waves.” Based on this image, the SWO presents works between and within performances, installations and workshops and invites the public to create a collective sound representation.

about

Decryptopattern is a collaboration work of artists Daisuke Ishida and Noriko Yamaguchi. The idea is to be able to grasp the truth behind the vast vortical information around us, through a graphical representation. Receiving news is part of our daily life. We can obtain updates even second by second through radio, TV, newspapers or news portal sites on the internet to know what is happening in the world. However this information is offered to us in one or more languages over text, audio, video, image and other media filtered by somebody. Daisuke Ishida believes that the facts about world incidents are not possible to be received without some form of filtering through news tellers, their thoughts, their experiences, their constraints and the incidents contexts. Therefore the duo presents us a possibility to understand media and to discover the abstract raw truth through aggregate information, Chladni patterns and Noriko Yamaguchi’s twisting papers as a direct physical phenomena.

about

The installation The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA mediate accumulates sequences of sine wave alterations in time. Eight pillars, each with one loudspeaker and one touch sensitive motorized fader, record and play back, audibly and physically, the visitor’s interaction with the frequency changing fader. Each visitor can intervene the looped playback and insert their own trace.

about

This piece shows the process of the accumulation of sine waves left by each visitor over the period of its exhibition. The installation consists of a circular octophonic array of loudspeakers in a wooden pavilion. A pedestal situated in the middle of the room allows for playing a sine wave defined by a fader and a dial. Each visitor enters the pavilion and choses a frequency with the fader and position of the sine wave via the dial. Every choice remains and adds to the ever growing collective performance – from absolute silence to a sound level close to white noise at the end of the festival.

about

This piece shows the process of the accumulation of sine waves left by each visitor over the period of its exhibition. The installation consists of an anechoic chamber lined with an array of loudspeakers and a pedestal with two dials situated in the middle of the room. Each visitor enters the chamber and choses a frequency and position of a sine wave via the dials. Every choice remains and adds to the ever growing collective performance – from absolute silence on day one to a sound level close to white noise at the finissage.

About

SWO district offered participants a highly immersive installation of 24 sine waves in an former factory.

It provided the tool for every participant to experience their very own sound narrative based on the personal experience of the occurring multitude of complex sound patterns throughout the exhibition space.

The extreme volume and multitude of difference tones and their interplay with the room allowed for an extremely bodily experience of sound.

ABOUT

The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA Static is an installation of 32 laptops receiving an internet audio stream (transmitted in real time, sound from a Japanese southern island) and decomposing the sound to 64 sine waves, linearly distributed in spectrum. The visualization of the played sine waves were shown on the computer screens.
