In this multi-sensory installation presented at AXENÉO7, a Pure Data program transforms live sound into silent speaker motion by transposing the pitch to subaudible levels. These movements generate visual and sonic variations through the reaction of extensions as they make contact with the floor. The resulting sounds mingle with those of viewers and peripheral ambient noise to create a causal loop of co-responsive activity with limitless variation. In this way, the work renders the immateriality of sound as a tangible event by silencing and reinterpreting the data of everyday life.
