[ISEA2012] Artist Statement: EVAN APODACA – Ultrasound

Artist Statement

Presented by the University of New Mexico, Taos

Ultrasound is an electronic sound installation that actively involves spectators in sound manipulation and discovery. The piece is a network of stainless-steel wires that hold Electromagnetic memory of prerecorded voice audio that visually resembles an abstracted body lying upon an operating table. The wire construction is based upon organic and biological systems of tensional integrity which when clipped and rubbed produce various sounds. Participants discover the noise possibilities produced through the wire tension and the sound memories in each segment while wearing a recording transducer composed of reel-to-reel tape heads.
