Listen to electromagnetic waves caused by modern devices and natural forces. Hear the patterns of ultraviolet and infrared light; the vibrations of ferric objects; the friction caused by insects and underwater sounds. Listen to the noise of tectonic movements, or of lighting phenomena thousands of kilometers distant. These are just a few of the hidden sounds that we will listen during the event on monday 11th April, after the hands on workshop in Cafe OTO on the 9th and 10th April.

We will have the chance to see the signum device in action, exploring how different artists use the device during a practice based event lead by Víctor Mazón Gardoqui and with composer Neil Kaczor as special guest.

Eventbrite - Artist Talk & Demo – Signum device with Víctor Mazón Gardoqui

The talk will follow from a workshop at Cafe OTO on 9th and 10th of April. Register to the workshop!

SIGNUM device is a translator – it uncovers the encrypted codes of information and the language of man/machine communication- which remain unintelligible without technical aid. Sharpening our awareness about what surrounds us, we will capture radio waves, FM/AM, ultrasounds, translocal network connections, personal broadcast spaces, inaudible electromagnetic fields, photoelectric effects, etc, read with a micro controller like an Arduino, Pic or a raspberry pi. SIGNUM can be used for various applications and in different environments: for the measurement and analysis of different signals through its 8 sensors and inputs, for field recordings, music composition or for aesthetic purposes within the sound or visual art praxis, as it has the unique ability to provide a wide sound palette and hard-to-identify sounds. The device is intended as an experimental tool for educational purposes and artistic practice.

The Music Hackspace programme is support through public funding by Arts Council England.
