“Hibernaculum : Vortex” by Carver Audain

Hibernaculum : Vortex was inspired by the Polar Vortex experienced in the Northern Hemisphere of the United States during the winter of 2014. Comprised almost entirely of amplitude modulation (AM) radio signals and recordings of the wind captured from a point of high altitude during Hurricane Sandy, the movement within the piece reflects the character of specific recent extreme weather events from the perspective of an individual located at roughly 40° 40’ 58” N 73° 57’ 53’ W.

NMR Commission: “Voices from the Paradise Network” by John Hudak

hudak_300.jpgVoices from the Paradise Network by John Hudak, with Flash programming by [Needs Flash Player and speakers on] – John writes: My mother-in-law passed away recently, reminding me of a technique that a parapsychologist named Dr. Konstantin Raudive (1906-1974) used to record what he purported to be voices of deceased spirits. With the amount of information moving around on the internet these days, and the passing of my mother-in-law, who I thought would want to get in touch (if possible), I thought I’d give Raudive’s technique a try within the digital realm.

This sound installation not only aims at exploring the idea of the Archive, but also rediscovering the mechanics of sensory experiences and aural cognition through a composed technological mediation of experience.
