SONIC ACTS Festival - The Geologic Imagination
Raviv Ganchrow: In the Company of Long Waves
1 March 2015 - Paradiso, Amsterdam, the Netherlands
The saturated spectrum of infrasound suggests that toned-down sounds don’t necessarily diminish. The lowest threshold of human hearing is also the upper register of an immense sonic territory that literally interfaces landmass with oceans and skies. Raviv Ganchrow introduces the theme of extensive acoustic waves in the context of his Long-Wave Synthesis project where marine oscillations, streaking meteors, calving glaciers, gas flares and nuclear explosions coexist; where sound become so heavy it’s affected by gravity; and where oscillations slow down to such an extent that they spill over into weather.
