installation

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.

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 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).

Garden of SWO 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 bring their laptop to play sine waves through the provided system of plant-loudspeakers.
