ɣ — 2022
Stereo, 93 min.
In a cosmic radiation shower subatomic particles from outer space collide with the earth at a force of one hundred million times more energy than any other known. These astrophysical phenomena generate electromagnetic radiation, also called ɣ-rays. Ɣ is a letter of the Greek alphabet representing a voiced velar fricative phoneme; the sound is produced by audible turbulence in the air, such as that generated by striking a tuning fork. Tuning fork, from greek διάπασῶνχορδῶν, means to vibrate through all possible sounds. This recording is the recording of twenty-seven different tuning forks coming into resonance with a room from the energy generated by the action of a body. Oscillations that reveal an audible and continuous turbulence within a space. If the recording is played in another space we can hear the vibratory superposition of both places, thus generating a polyphony of architectures. As a form of telepathic-telematic; as if time did not exist and was only a reference for the actions taking place in space.
