Oscillations

About the event

Join us as we explore combination of hypnotic audio work with video and haptic elements!  

Connecting to its audience on an immediate, physical level, Oscillations creates a spatial, sonic landscape rich in sensory and poetic associations.

Inspired by science and the complex inter-relatedness of the physical world, the piece reflects Victoria Evans' interest in the way distant or invisible phenomena, such as the forces of gravity, can have a tangible effect on our day-to-day lives.

The process of data sonification (the use of non-speech audio to perceptualise information) allows tide tables to be coded in such a way that they can interact with electronic music software. In doing so, the rhythmic, cyclical patterns of the tides can become audible, and their interplay with lunar and solar orbits throughout the course of a year can be experienced as music.

This installation brings the work to Edinburgh for the first time and includes a brand new online interactive element, Tidesong, that extends the project beyond the gallery space to make connections with audiences across the UK.

Producer: Javier Aregger
