Jacob Kirkegaard: Acoustic Spaces and Unheard Sounds (Sonic Acts XIII, 2010)
Sonic Acts is a biannual festival at the intersection of arts, science, music & technology. Jacob Kirkegaard’ works focus on the scientific and aesthetic aspects of resonance, time, sound and hearing. His installations, compositions and performances deal with acoustic spaces and phenomena that usually remain imperceptible. Using unorthodox recording tools, including accelerometers, hydrophones and home-built electromagnetic receivers, Kirkegaard captures and contextualizes hitherto unheard sounds from within a variety of environments: a geyser, a sand dune, a nuclear power plant, an empty room, and even sounds from the human inner ear itself. Kirkegaard will talk about his works. Jacob Kirkegaard’s (DK) installations, compositions and performances focus on the scientific and aesthetic aspects of resonance, time, sound and hearing. This performance was part of "Session 8: Spatial Perceptions".
