First Mote Edition produced in collaboration with Farmacia901.
The project “frequencies (sound quanta)” represents the audio version of “frequencies (light quanta)”, a sound and light installation by Nicolas Bernier commissioned by LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, Gijón, Spain (August – October 2014). We have re-created 100 acrylic transparent panels working on the basis of Bernier’s original design specifically made for the installation. Each one is laser cut with a unique design, thus replicating the 100 panels of the physical installation.
We also designed the graphical user interface of the software which comes along with the object.
The edition comes with a card + download code, 100 sound files and a software (programmed by Ennio Mazzon) which allows to randomly play the sound files.
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.
