Envision Yourself as Fossil in the Future – consultation.

  • First we discuss what “noise” is. We listen to noisy field recordings,  samples of white/pink etc. noise, the sound of our hands rubbing against each other and talk about what these noises sound & feel like.
    • Example. We try to visualise the shape and texture of our hands trough the noises they make when rubbed against each other.
  • We discuss what media is. Information can be stored into different substances. Substances change when information is recorded. What we hear when listening to recorded sounds is how the media changed when information was stored to it.
    • We listen to blank recordings and amplified silence.
  • We explore how traces of this time are transmitted to the far future trough contemporary technologies. Some of our messages will travel so far that they will be considered fossils when they reach their audiences.
    • A FM transmission might get stuck and orbit the sun, to be heard/experienced a millennia from today.
  • We think about noise. How the sound of noise bounces from surfaces it hits and changes. Samples of its grains map out every sound that has existed and demarcate every sound that will exist.
    • We listen to entropy and vision it’s shape by listening to the sound of our hands rubbing against each other.
  • When we listen to noise carefully: We can hear sounds of today – The way they will ne heard in the future.
  • This is how we can discover our fossilised remains in the future.
