The musical content in this sound installation reflects the orbits’ timeframe within which asteroids might impact the Earth. The composition will only be complete at the exact moment of collision – in other words, the end of the world.
Each asteroid has been given a sound interpretation according to data from NASA’s Near Earth Object Program.
The position of each sound (asteroid) within the soundscape interprets the relative position between the Earth (the observer), and the asteroid’s orbit, which remain in constant motion through space and time. As the observer moves the projection around in space as an act of “searching,” the interactive star map and the the sounds align to reveal the location of the asteroids in space.

Astronomers at Stanford University recorded acoustical pressure waves in the Sun by carefully tracking movements on its surface with the Michelson Doppler Imager on the SOHO spacecraft. Acoustical waves bounce from one side of the Sun to the other in about two hours, causing its surface to oscillate. These sound waves are normally at frequencies too low for the human ear to hear, so the scientists have sped up the waves 42,000 times and compressed 40 days of vibrations into a few seconds…

Using these recordings I created a musical instrument using an old Tascam four-track tape recorder and a three minute looping cassette, by recording the four tracks at different speeds I was able to create differently pitched variations of the original sound and using the volume sliders, pitch and EQ settings I am able to control these tones making a playable version of the original recordings of the Sun.

Blanca Regina will play with live projections and live processed voice and objects

Part Inspired part disillusioned by Pythagorean Harmony Of The Spheres. Our aim is to create a musical performance based on the principals of scale,  harmony, distance, and dissonance.

‘Come’, they say, ‘Come out of the days heat, / out of shaded rooms, let’s escape and slip away, / let the veils fall, one by one. / Slide into pools that lie like mirrors of the sky, / and let the moon wash over our bodies.’ (Imtiaz Dharker, 2006)

LISTENING WORKSHOP

25th june tuesday 7.30 pm

listening workshop by HIAS resident Kiriakos Spirou

“Listening to Listening: A Workshop on the Everyday Aesthetics and Politics of Sound”

In all our activities, day and night, we are immersed in sound. We are constantly hearing things, as we commute to work or when at home watching videos online. But are we truly listening to what’s happening around us? In this workshop we will examine different ways of listening, and playfully explore the sonorous world that we traverse daily: what detail and information hides in the more subtle sounds of our actions and social interactions? Can we learn more about ourselves and the others if we try to listen more closely?

This workshop will be delivered in two parts.The first is formulated as a presentation/talk of a theory of listening, based on the inspiring writings of Jean-Luc Nancy, John Cage and others. We will see how listening can be “a way of being in the world” and a common ground for social interaction and understanding that is sometimes overlooked in our culture. The second part consists of listening exercises and activities, as an open exploration of listening in combination to movement and being with others: by immersing ourselves in the sounds of our environment, the tiniest details of our everyday lives are exposed, which then inform our interaction with others and the world.

The duration of the workshop is two hours. The workshop is open to performers, students and the general public. Participants are encouraged to bring comfortable clothes that they can move in, as well as their journal/diary.

About the workshop leader: Kiriakos Spirou is a composer, pianist and writer, currently living in the Netherlands. His research focuses on collaborative composition and improvised performance. As a composer and performer he’s worked extensively in contemporary dance theatre, and he’s presented his work in Greece, Cyprus, USA, Italy, the Netherlands and the UK.

Uldis Veismanis was in the Soviet Army from 1979 to 1981 and then began training in Systema with Valentin Vasiliev and Valeri Terletsky in 1981. At the time he was also taking part in inter-army sport competitions and eventually was qulified as a Dynamo Instructor (Soviet Army Sport Club which trained many of the top athletes of the Soviet Union, many of whom are recognised Olympic winners) in 1987. He was requested by the city council to help with the problems of youth crime and instituted a training program which reduced crime in the area drammatically in a very brief space of time. In 2002 he moved to the UK where he continues to train in the System.
