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.

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).

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.
