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.

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.

performance

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).

SWO in Tama Art University 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 a sine wave generating object.
