    Acoustic Phenomena and Applications of Acoustics, presentation by Prof. Dr. Christ Glorieux Acoustic waves are omnipresent in our daily life, but it is only occasionally that we wonder about their how and why. In this presentation, Glorieux will show that even ordinary acoustic events, and our perception of them, are driven by a fascinating combination of physics laws and phenomena. Attention will be given to how acoustic filtering is occurring in most acoustical scenarios, and how it can lead to exotic sound phenomena. Some light will be shed on the energy carried by acoustic waves, and on the question whether that energy could be exploited. Mechanisms to control sound propagation and reflection will be discussed, and the physics behind a series of particular acoustic phenomena (quetzal bird sound at Chichen Itza pyramid, photo acoustic effect, magneto acoustic effect, acoustic black hole) - and applications of acoustics (acoustic levitation, acoustic motors, acoustic refrigeration, sound source localisation, self localisation) will be addressed.

            Footage from Conversation Piece, my installation for the 2013 Loughborough University fine art degree show. (Apologies for audio and video not being in perfect sync in places. I made the video using an audio recording and an image sequence comprising all webcam frames input that day; the frame rate wasn't consistent)

                • Strip Lakeshore East / Single-screen version / 2012

                  Panoramic, time delayed video, 1 hour 28 minutes. Stereo sound: please use headphones if possible. This is a single screen version. In gallery exhibition contexts, the piece is normally displayed as a multi-projector immersive or building scale installation, or even as a live performance. It is also wider, consisting of 9 to 12 "slices" as opposed to the 6 seen above, See details and documentation here: www.nadassor.net/2012/04/strip-lfe/ To make this piece I rode my bicycle throughout the year, in all seasons, day and night, on multiple paths through a unique part of Chicago that has been completely transformed by human artifice, in the process losing any sense of a consistent ground plane or uniformity of locale: it consists of violent oppositions between landscaped parks, underground service tunnels, parking-caverns inhabited by impounded cars and homeless derelicts, three level underground highways, manicured lake-shores, luxury living condos and walled in observation decks, fountains and fireworks, garbage dumps and engine rooms- all stacked on top of each other within less than a square mile. The technical mechanism by which the panoramic image is generated is similar to the system I used for previous pieces in this series: A continuous video is shot from a camera mounted on a bicycle moving through a location. Consecutive moving frames from that single traveling shot, are spatially laid out next to each other so that each "slice" shows a moment a few seconds behind that shown by it’s neighbor. The intervals in time between these slices are constantly in flux, thus generating a landscape of shifting spatial proportions. Sound is also an important element in this piece: every slice of video comprising the strip plays its audio at the same moment, creating a strange doppler effect as sounds from different, adjacent locations play in unison.

                      An Infinite Line: Brighton was commissioned by the 2008 Brighton Festival, as an exploration of and response to the quality of natural light in Brighton. The project was in three parts: a site-specific performance piece, an installation of 8mm cine films, and a book.
