Sonic Architecture of the Inner Space. Interactive Sound composition.
(2,2) 0 is a project made from a collaborative process between moving image artist Nazare Soares, sound artist Øystein Kjørstad Fjeldbo and artist and shamanic practitioner Amalia Fonfara. We are developing an interactive installation which utilises real-time rendered binaural sound systems. Space functions as a cognitive map, where the navigator will be exposed to types of temporal illusion through a sound composition in space given by ambisonic binaural techniques. The gaze will be reformulated and question within an invisible architecture, the virtual space. Disorientation and de-centre will be forced pushing the body to re-orientate itself. By the use of the absence of light and sound frequencies, we avoid spatial and time cognitive experience to be projected outside of the body. Taking the structure of a (2,2) mode shamanic drum as a reference we have built an invisible architecture that is experienced sonically. Timeless Machine will offer different layers of experiences, exploring affect within body processes of becoming. We utilise wireless motion and position tracking through an Ultra Wide Band-system. From this information (XYZ body in the room and XYZ head direction), we are rendering binaural sound in real time from Pure Data, directly out to wireless headphones on the navigator. In this way, we have created a composition of movable virtual sound sources throughout acoustics rooms. One navigator at a time can move around and interact with these sources through their presence in the rooms.
(2,2) 0 is a cinematic space where the visual external stimulus is removed. An invitation to navigate through a kinematic montage from a spatial psychoacoustic experience, where the imagination seeks to alter and proliferate, reverberating through the deep cavities of the psyche. The inner space is mapped conceiving another kind of system that isn’t represented spatially but is instead constructed from patterns of single events remapped from intensities, interferences and temporal sensitivity, delays and elastics rhythms. 8 chambers exist simultaneously, each one containing different facets of the acoustic information: it carry sonic characteristics, latency, loudness and modulations of rate and direction. In this way one is orientated within a journey through the architecture of the inner space and towards expanding outer qualities of the imagination. An inner journey towards a spatiality of ambience, atmosphere and spatial self; the heart may pre-echo endless openings, without the eye, space is navigated by being remembered or imagined. Taking the structure of a (2,2) mode shamanic drum as a reference, the artwork explores the possibility for re-combinations and simultaneities of the real-and-imagined. The hybrid spaces present the use of technology and its relation to knowledge, through systems and languages found in techno-animism, cinema and hauntology practices.
