RAIN FLOWING DOWN STRUCTURAL DRAIN PIPES

Sound piece exhibited at QB Gallery, LUCIA, Oslo group show, Oslo

 

multichannel diffusion, 7’, 2016

The sound piece is an aural transfiguration of thunderstorms recorded at the edge of the inner city. Sparse audio signals, non-audible low frequencies, and background noise surround the piece structuring out into large accumulation patterns similar to the hyper-organic multiple electromagnetic activities in our atmosphere. Accumulative storms that remind us of Earth disruptive weather systems, an anthropogenic feeling of poetic still time to our surroundings. The infrasound range of frequencies carried by any biome-dependent thunderstorm is capable of overriding the noise frequencies of urban settlement made from all technological debris, communication technologies, batteries, semiconductors, traffic or noise pollution.
