Description

Under the chairmanship of Morten Søndergaard and Peter Weibel the conference »ISACS17: Resonant Worlds – Curating Sound, Art & Science« takes place at the ZKM from 28–30 September, 2017. The conference addresses and debates the resonant worlds of sound, art, science and curation.

ISACS17 (re)investigates the  intersections of sound, art and science from the perspective of artistic / creative curation. The participants are asked to showcase, and reflect on, their own practices from the perspective of how and why choices are made in order to make things »work« – in the sense that it resonates in/with other people, contexts, culture, society, history, and »the world«. These are perhaps issues of (and effects from) embodied experiences, of language games, of existence.

Lecture

Expanding the Electromagnetic Spectrum: Sounds of Science

Since 1000 of years we have created instruments like drums, violins, pianos to control the generation of sound. Scores are a kind of intuitive algorithm. Today we have created new instruments, from computer to smart phones, which can channel hitherto uncontrollable electromagnetic waves. Proplems and prospects of this new sounds horizon will be discussed.
