DETIALS

SWO performances are concerned with breaking the border between spectators and musicians, as well as the common restriction of the traditional formats of music (music has a beginning and an end) and its hierarchy (e.g. a classical orchestra).

SWO in ISEA invited participants to meet at a given time and place to perform together, everyone in their own manner and to their own liking. Participants were asked to either bring a sine wave generating object or make use of the provided egg-shaped sine wave generator, furnished with a loudspeaker and controllable via a potentiometer (frequency) and an on/off switch.

project

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

SWO nomadic consisted of 6 participatory performances in 6 different acoustically interesting locations in Yokohama. Five performances each invited 20 chosen participants to experience a different site. After each performance the participants were asked to hang their hacked iPod with an attached loudspeaker, playing a chosen sine wave, in the pier warehouse. Over the course of the exhibition time 100 iPods were hung in the warehouse.

The grand finale took place in the Yamashita Park, where all iPods were brought to play till their batteries ran out.
