sound waves as video art

“20 Hz observes a geo-magnetic storm occurring in the Earth’s upper atmosphere. Working with data collected from the CARISMA radio array and interpreted as audio, we hear tweeting and rumbles caused by incoming solar wind, captured at the frequency of 20 Hertz. Generated directly by the sound, tangible and sculptural forms emerge suggestive of scientific visualisations. As different frequencies interact both visually and aurally, complex patterns emerge to create interference phenomena that probe the limits of our perception.” [more]

After watching the above video, 20 Hz, by Semiconductor Films over on The Fox Is Black earlier today I couldn’t help but think of Jason Bernagozzi’s recent performance over at RoCo. Using sound waves as video art? I’m hooked!

P.S. I could watch this all day.
