"In-betweenness" 2 channel audio recording (15:25) in Digital Matter(s) exhibition at Saranac Art Projects in Spokane, WA. December 3 - 31, 2010
When hardware is controlled by software various unintended sonic phenomena occur. These often noisy and dynamic relationships between symbolic structures and physical matter encourage rethinking relationships between physical and symbolic processes in computer medium, because these sonic phenomena are something in-between.
The sound sources of “In-betweenness” are sounds which occurred in recording process which in this case consisted of recording software (symbolic) controlling the hardware (physical). In other words these are recordings of recording process itself.
In the end several such recordings in various speeds are layered together with acoustic mirror – software which can analyze acoustics of many different environments and apply these acoustic characteristics to other sounds. The result is a texture of microscopic sonic events which manifest unity between real world processes and symbolic codes.
