Notes

The project “frequencies (sound quanta)” represents the audio version of “frequencies (light quanta)”, a sound and light installation commissioned by LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, Gijón, Spain (vimeo.com/104745321).

Taking the quantum – the smallest measurable value of energy – as its conceptual basis, the project metaphorically creates relationships between basic quantum physics principles applied to the audiovisual creative process: particles, probabilities, wave/particle duality and discontinuity. Structured around these notions, the composition stems from 100 sound fragments that develop themselves aleatorically, generating an ever expanding yet disruptive form.

The release takes the form of a limited edition of 100 transparent acrylic panels. Each one is laser cut with a unique design, replicating the 100 panels of the physical installation. People who order the release will therefore receive a totally unique art object. The release comes with a card + download code, 100 sound files and a software* (programmed by Ennio Mazzon) allowing to randomly play the soundfiles.

*The software only works with aiff or wav file formats.
