Save Event: Threshold

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:




This exhibition explores the sonic thresholds that control reactions in other sounds and within our selves. The material is chosen by the artist or by the visitor, connecting their own phone, laptop or other device to the installation. With knobs to be tweaked, pads to be hit and by gestures gentle or giant, sounds react according to a volatile dynamic. Our day has a complex soundtrack. Our ability to process sonic information reaches new thresholds, changing the way we use and perceive sound. A chorus of tones, distortions and dropouts accompany our conversations. Our music is eclectic, appropriated; stolen properly. Entertained or offended, breaking into a dance, a sweat, or a riot, under the influence or over the top, at which point does our behaviour change and how do we react to being pushed too far? When do we stop asking for more? Too little or too much defines our response.
