From Unsound to the Symphony of Silence

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Nik will speak about his latest sound installation "Infra Ultra" which is approaching the concept of an unsound system. "Unsound denotes a sonic frontier zone; a borderline at the fuzzy periphery of auditory perception, where sound is inaudible yet still capable of producing neuro-affects or physiological resonances, modulating both thought and the body" (Goodman, 2017). For Infra Ultra he recorded inaudible noises such as those emanating from bats, insects, wind turbines and electronic devices, pitching them into the bandwidth of human audibility (from 20Hz - 20kHz) and thus illuminating a hidden parallel reality. For his project, "Symphony of Silence", he travelled to North Korea in August 2017 to propose a piece of music based on the idea of anti-sound conceptualized for the site of the demarcation line between North and South Korea.
