THE SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA STAY AMPLIFIED
Sine Wave Orchestra (Ken Furudate, Kazuhiro Jo, Daisuke Ishida, Mizuki Noguchi)
The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA stay is a work situated in a room with multiple speakers horizontally placed alongside the participant. The basic idea is that a participant enters the room, selects the frequency and the sound source position for his/her sine wave, and leave the room with the sine wave continuously being played in the room. As more participants enter the room and leave sine waves, the more sine waves are accumulated resulting in the sea of sine waves as collective sound representation. During the exhibition, the sound field will change from a phase where each sine wave individually represents its existence to a phase where each sine wave mutually interferes as a cluster. In the work, by listening to the sea of sine waves played by the others and by adding his/her own sine wave to the room, people participate in the performance of The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA.
The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA (Japan) is a participatory sound performance project that was started in 2002 by four core members: Ken Furudate, Kazuhiro Jo, Daisuke Ishida, Mizuki Noguchi. Under the concept that each participant plays a sine wave, people are invited to create the sea of sine waves as collective sound representation. By taking in different environments and styles, the orchestra has presented its work in several international exhibition including DEAF 2004, "open nature" at NTT ICC in 2005, and Yokohama Triennale 2005. Through sharing/separating the time and the space, the sine wave played by each participant interferes with each other and represent a communication among the participants as an abstract form.
