Sunday May 19, 15:00 You are invited to hail the springtime in a hidden Amsterdam park at the opening of Secret Signals.
Synergetica is starting a collaboration with Zone2Sorce in Amstelpark, a breathing reverie in the midst of an urban expanse.
Francisco LÃ³pez, GHOST FOREST
Ghost Forest is a site-specific compositional transposition of a multitude of original recordings, made in diverse forests all over the world, into different outdoor or indoor spaces. With the aim of creating a crisp three-dimensional, subtly immersive environment, the original captured â€œrealityâ€ has been evolved through extreme filtering. This process has been carried out to reveal a high frequency, ghostly spectrum of frequencies of the transposed forest environments. The different â€œspectralâ€ sonic layers are automatically mixed live in the space (in ever-changing combinations) through special ad hoc sound systems specially designed for each installation, with a large number of hidden small speakers or sonic transducers, spread out in different configurations according to the spaces where it has been presented.
Evelina Domnitch & Dmitry Gelfand, HYDROGENY
Natureâ€™s simplest atom and mother of all matter, hydrogen feeds the stars as well as interlaces the molecules of their biological descendants â€“ to whom it ultimately whispers the secrets of quantum reality. Hydrogenâ€™s most prevalent earthly guise lies within the composition of water. Slight electrical perturbation splits water into hydrogen and oxygen gas, resulting in diaphanous bubble clouds slowly rising towards the liquidâ€™s surface.
Emanating from an array of electrodes at the bottom of a water-filled chamber, strings and strata of hydrogen bubbles meticulously trace their emergent surroundings. A white laser sheet scans and illuminates the hydrogen bubble trajectories. Each quivering bubble-lens divides the white light into its constituent spectrum of colors, thereby inciting enhanced, prismatic depth perception.
