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.

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

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.

performance

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.
