Polypulses: On the Urban Flow Filtering Space and Reality

USAG’s (Urban Sonic Activator Group; feat. Eva Sjuve and Ola Nilsson) residence was spent experimenting with two sources of sonic sources and combining these two into a live recording. One sonic strain is examining the soundscape within Foucault’s text “On Other Places” filtered through a synthetic voice, combining this with recordings of frequencies, hidden in the architectural material around the gallery space using contact microphones. The combination of philosophical thought on spaces combined with the local sonic identity of Koh-i-noor became the final piece, Polypulses: On the Urban Flow Filtering Space and Reality.
