Sound Dome Concert with works by Thomas Ankersmit, Christoph Illing, Yannick Hofmann and the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics

Sat, 13.12.2014 8 pm
Venue ZKM_Cube

The evening opens with a work by Dutch artist Thomas Ankersmit. This is to be followed by Christoph Illing’s »Brain Decompositions«, which mediates the spatial attributes of brain activities.
The composition by Thomas Ankersmith was developed for the analog Serge modular synthesizer as part of the ZKM project, in 2013. It includes the digital processing of sounds based on otoacoustic emissions, which are then first created in the ear of the listener himself. For »Brain Decompositions« by Christoph Illing, by way of »Independent Component Analysis« a process is used for the spatial separation of sound waves derived from the recording of 30 electrodes on the skull. The elements from which the electrical brain signal is composed are then reproduced through loudspeakers.
