At the centre of Unsound: Undead is a new work produced for an ‘Unsound System’—an acousmonium of multiple infrasonic and ultrasonic speakers, operating at frequencies that are ‘felt as much as heard.’ Around the gallery, a series of projected videos, animations and archival materials will disclose the AUDINT group’s legacies and future trajectories within the peripheral and occulted dimensions of the sonic. Together, these elements explore how sound and its (science) fictions might channel the otherworldly and produce new forms of agency, subjectivity and materiality outside of place and time.
The installation is activated by performances, readings and audio-visual presentations throughout the weekend of Bristol New Music 2018.
Installation preview: Friday 20 April 2018, 6–8pm
