Rocks meet sound, geology meets art, the science of rock deformation meets interactive 3D space. Aftershock is an exhibition of four spatial sound-art installations and is the result of the art-science collaboration between composer Natasha Barrett, geoscience Karen Mair and Norwegian Centre of Excellence for Physics of Geological Processes (PGP), University of Oslo.
Cleavage Plane: Shearing apparatus, Iceland Spar Calcite, ultrasonic microphone, one loudspeaker, real-time frequency transposition.
Crush-3: Interactive video and sound, wireless headphones, helmet with motion tracking system, loudspeaker array and ambisonics spatialisation.
