Sound Studies Lecture am 7. Dezember 2009
Das SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA interpretierte u.a. Paul De Marinis. On the Sound Studies Lecture, SWO is going to speak about their earliest activity at Edith-Russ-Haus in 2009 and passed activities.
The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA (SWO) is a participatory sound performance project that has been shown at various exhibitions since 2002, for both long and short periods of time [http://swo.jp/]. Ken Furudate, Kazuhiro Jo, Daisuke Ishida, and Mizuki Noguchi have served as the core organizers of the project. Under the basic concept that each participant plays a sine wave, people are invited to create a sea of sine waves as a collective sound representation.
In 1822, Jean Baptiste Joseph Fourier, a French mathematician, discovered that sine waves could be used as basic pieces to form nearly any periodic sound in the world. Based on his theory, we regard each sine wave as a person and the collective sound representation as a community. The interferences and resonances of sine waves depict the relationships of the participants.
