Aura Satz: SKYQUAKES IN EAR TRUMPETS

SKYQUAKES IN EAR TRUMPETS

A sound sculpture by Aura Satz

 


Aura Satz, Skyquakes in Ear Trumpets, 2013

In this multi-channel audio sculpture, ten hearing trumpets flower from the centre of a large brass concert phonograph horn like a cornocupia of sounds. While the phonograph horn represents a technology of amplification from the sound source outwards, i.e. the horn's 'throat' towards its 'mouth', the ear trumpets function in the opposite direction, capturing sounds inwardly, ear-like. Here both are merged at the service of multi-channel outputs, playing an intricate psychoacoustic composition which uses a sine-wave generator to produce tones both above and below the threshold of human hearing. The composition features eerie tinkling sounds that seem to oscillate within the inner ear, in addition to deeper sirens and drones that are evocative of the unexplained trumpet sounds which have been recorded across the skies of the world and are thought to mark the end of time according to the Book of Revelations. As the sculptural sonic experience spirals around and through the horn mouths, the sounds echo the biomorphic shapes of the horns, sliding in and out of the sculpture towards the listener's ear.

'Curiosity: Art and the Pleasures of Knowing' exhibition and performances as part of Hayward Touring exhibition in association with Cabinet Magazine, curated by Brian Dillon

Curiosity is an ambiguous passion: the virtuous impulse behind the search for knowledge and at the same time a disreputable desire for novelty and strangeness. This exhibition, curated by Brian Dillon and organised in association with Cabinet magazine, concentrates on contemporary art's return to the intellectual and aesthetic freedom that emerged in seventeenth century art and science. Taking the cabinet of curiosities as its founding motif and through a combination of contemporary art and historical artefacts, Curiosity explores the pleasure that comes from the search for the wondrous and bizarre for their own sake and the contradictory nature of that pleasure.

Artists include: Agency, Salvatore Arancio, Anna Atkins, Sir Joseph Banks, Leopold Blaschka and Rudolph Blaschka, Corinne May Botz, Pablo Bronstein, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, Gerard Byrne, Collection of Roger Caillois, Nina Canell, The Center for Land Use Interpretation, Tacita Dean, John Dee, Albrecht Durer, Jimmie Durham, Gunda Forster, Aurelien Froment, Galileo Galilei, Philip Henry Gosse, Laurent Grasso, Thomas Grunfeld, Susan Hiller, Robert Hooke, Ferrante Imperato, Toril Johannessen, Nina Katchadourian, Elad Lassry, Leonardo da Vinci, Nicolaes Maes, Jeremy Millar, Matt Mullican, Jean Painleve, Katie Paterson, B. Picart, after Charles Le Brun, Francis Place, Aura Satz, Miroslav Tichy, J.M.W. Turner, Richard Wentworth
