Field Recording Photos

A photographic and audible study of nature. 'Nash Point / Monk Nash' is a photographic, phonographic and electro-acoustic study of a stretch of the Glamorgan coastline recorded over a year. The area is hostile to humans: unstable collapsing stones, strong currents and low frequency rumble, give it a sense of otherness. The area fluctuates between stillness and violence, quiet and noise: noise that silences the internal monologue. On a calm day the sound of the lone gong buoy resonates clearly and carries to the shore. The walk from Nash Point down to Monk Nash can be eerily peaceful, and yet instability always hangs in the air. #WillParker #mono_on #SoundArt #FieldRecording #Photography #ContemporaryArt #Photo #NashPoint #MonkNash #Acoustics #EnvironmentalSound

Ultra Acoustic Materials

The iron elements come in three different constellations: iron as a mineral, iron as a steel component and iron oxidising in an aesthetic interpretation of a 'buckling' set-up. #ChristophDeBoeck  #HelgePfeiffer #SoundArt #Acoustics #Material #ContemporaryArt #InstallationArt #SoundSculpture #Sculpture #UltraAcousticEmission

Heliophone Sunlight Sound

The installation uses Bell's photo-acoustic principle. It follows the trajectory of the sun, catching the sunlight and focusing it, via a parabolic lens, onto one point. A rotating disk chops the light up into small fragments. A photo-acoustic cell transforms these fragments into sound, made audible by a large horn. The tonality of the installation changes with the intensity of light.
