Birds singing, lake waves beating the shore, boat & airplane’s flange noise panning, fishes jump up and water splash around, children throw the stones which leaving widening rings on the water —and Felder sound draw the subtle sound ripple on the water. A miracle Felder moment.

—-Description of the work——

‘eternal return’ conveys a immortal message to mankind to provoke a sense of obligation for the time being.

The artwork has been articulated in a short film based on the actual installation artwork created by Acci Baba. The caption is cited from Friedrich Nietzsche’s ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra”, where Zarathustra speaks out the context of ‘superman’. In the film, the verse is spoken by an ape inside a TV represented as an artificial intelligence derived from our technological development.

The artwork was realized using an abandoned cathode ray tube TV found on street. By refurbishing, the rubbish returned its life to be used as another purpose. The ape has been displayed in the TV using 3D animation technique, allowing it to speak out verses freely. The artwork plots a question through an ape to indicate our accelerating materialism in our system without the true means of continuum. In order to provide a multidimensional perspective, the artwork metaphorically expresses corresponding elements such as; material and spirit, past and future, beginning and end, devolution and evolution.

The ape is often used as a common icon to resemble our beliefs and intelligence. Hanuman from the ancient India, Sarutahiko from old Shintoism, symbol of Three Wise Monkeys from ancient civilizations. In the Kubrick’s '2001: A Space Odyssey' the ape discovers the usage of tools underlying the birth of our technological era. First ever primate to be out into space was a monkey to investigate the biological effects of space travel. The artwork pays homage toward historically used symbolism and confronts today’s subjects through Nietzsche’s philosophical concepts.

‘eternal return’ gives a moment to think over our behavior and the system that amplifies the endless ego. It concludes its purpose by creating ironic connections between artificial intelligence and the viewer, questioning the zeitgeist in these times of a rapidly shifting paradigms.

Sound Installation “THE POOL” in City Sonic 2009

- Installation,info [ 告知 ] — s_o @ 09. 6月, 2009

the_pool

“One of the most fascinating things about electric music is that daily objects can be used to generate astonishing acoustics.” That was the interpretation that two amateur garden-swimmers, sub-tle. and miu fell for. Later they brought their musical interface, the swimming pool to the 14th century tower in Mons, Tour Valenciennoise, with certainty. The installation ‘the pool’ is an open incubator bringing up the cascade reaction of the water and sound behavior. Continuously new audio textures are coaxed from the information generated by the vibrating water surface, and they feedback, oscillate the water, metamorphose into next form in the chain reaction. In the chamber, a melody arises and disappears, the harmony blooms and dies corresponding to the motion of water, as two japanese transmedia artists also work with the following interpretation, thus, “One of the most fascinating things in every aspects, is to encounter, something never recur.”

From 25th June until 25th July, the sound installation “the pool” by sub-tle.+ miu will be presented at the international sound art festival “City Sonics 2009” in Mons (Belgium).
Their altered swimming pool works as an autonomic musical interface to generate the audio texture from water’s behavour, and continuously updates the soundscape inside the 14th century tower, Tour Valenciennoise, during the festival.
25th June 2009 / 21:00~ sub-tle. will perform on the opening of the festival “City Sonic 2009”.
