Matters of Thinking

#1 Research Question(s) :

Is it possible to translate new-materialistic perspectives into acoustical phenomenological experiences of sound art?

I will just start with this. Let’s see where it goes…

#1.1 Question towards myself: What exactly is a new-materialistic perspecive?

#1.2 What is the difference between sound art and the multimedial toolkit of a new-media designer?

Why is it important for me to make one aware and to be able to listen to those tiny details?

Even if those experiments where more about to recreate basic acoustic and physical concepts, they revealed more than expected results. The wire becoming hot and causing a refractive effect was something I did not read about in advance and it needs further exploration. While the sounding wire is an spatial experience, the visual experice of warm rising air is pointed to a certrain position of the space – towards the wire. While I am still orienting myself towards a phenomenological experience of sound in space, I am wondering if I can relate the heat wire to the topic of horizons and if light/color will change its perception according to the wires temperature. How will our view and horizon change in the following years, while I am still dreaming of having a space full of powerful guitar amps, with metal rods driven by electromagnetic fields, playing sounds according to the postion of people inside the space? I will leave this open for now, but I am slowly getting there.

Additional question: How to deal with the topic and awareness of global warming by using technology, causing additional heat without being cynical or ignorant? e.g. PINAR YOLDAS: GLOBAL WARMING YOGA STUDIO

Notes:
Need a Resonance body to pickup sound
Wind, movement, heat, alternate pitch (Ventilator)
Vibration creates tremolo like sound.
Square Wave is really harsh.
The higher the volume, the more loose/hotter the wire gets.
At one pint the amp turns off
Two Wires for one stereo channel
How does the sound feed back onto the wire?
What happens when I put water on it?
Can this run for a long time without catching fire?
How do two wires interact with each other? (Phasing on close frequency)
Does the magnet position matter?
Can this installation be outside somewhere? (Wind composition)
-> Resonance Frequency of the space? Room Nodes.

The lack of proper recording equipment made it not possible to share the acoustic experience remotly. This is a technical thing, but I really need to care more about this if I want to get helpful feedback.
