15:00–19:00 Site open 15:00 Departure for the field trip by bus from Paradiso. Commissioned by Sonic Acts / Dark Ecology The field trip to the site of Raviv Ganchrow’s Long Wave Synthesis promises to be an impressive infrasound experience. Long Wave Synthesis is a land-art scale sound installation that investigates infrasound, and probes the relations between how we perceive the landscape and long-wave vibrations. The piece creates a complex topography of acoustic waves in a range of 4 to 30 Hz (mostly in the infrasound range, below the threshold of human hearing) spreading out from an array of custom-built, very low frequency generators. Long Wave Synthesis focuses on material properties of sound, and investigates ways in which a location manifests itself through interactions between walking, territory and sonic attention. The long waves physically interact with the topography and atmospheric conditions, while simultaneously ‘oscillating’ our sense of the surroundings. Prior to the field trip there are lectures on infrasound by Raviv Ganchrow, Jon Hagstrum and Hillel Schwartz.
