Four oxidated metal Plates, Four Infrasound Transducers, Debris From Amsterdam Harbours.
Presented by STEIM Foundation and Living Art Lab Amsterdam.
Winner of the Public call MACROTONE, by STEIM Foundation. Netherlands.
Solo Show designed for the Shooting Range Room of Marineterrain, Amsterdam.
Harbour explores the relation between “Industrial and Natural geographies”. It departs from detailed sonic recordings of the Amsterdam coastline and its most important harbours. A documental archive that is created with particular attention to very low frequencies, often generated by mechanic engines, boats and heavy machinery.
The project studies spectrums of sound that are normally not accessible to us, by using very low frequencies and infrasounds as sculptural tools. The result is an installation that induces low vibration on raw materials and sediments, taking advantage of the unique acoustics of a former Shooting Range Room. The low resonance is constantly travelling in a loop reflection through the 25 meters long room, a space that was formerly acoustically designed to abosrve high frequencies during shooting Trainning Sessions.
