Artificial Memory Trace :
All original sounds employed were generated from:
2: Explosion from cannon (extended into 20 min of resonance) recorded by Kwi in the cavern of Han Sur Lesse in Belgium, 1993.
1, 2: Sine-wave-model of planet Earth vibration created by Kwi in Studio CRMW in Liege, Belgium, 1990 (extract from AMT Vol1.)
1, 2: Sine-like tonal-sound of electric field of Gymnotiform fish recorded by Kwi in Amazon, Brazil, 2008
2: Field-recordings by Siobhan McDonald (melting water on iceberg, water running in between tectonic plates, church bells and wind) recorded in Iceland, August 2010.
2: The Eyjafjallajokull earthquake audible sounds are created with specially developed software using earthquake sensor data from the SIL network in Iceland. Copyright: Sveinn Ólafsson, Gagnahnit Inc, Iceland. Short low frequency sounds, each of 1-2 sec of duration, you can hear mixed within track 2 on these locations - 5:49, 12:03 and 12:06.
1, 2, 3, 4, 6: Tactile manipulations and other transformations of lava debris recorded at 96 kHz of ultrasonic range by Kwi; volcanic stones were collected in Iceland by Siobhan McDonald in Aug. 2010. Track 6 reveals purely acoustic properties of the lava stones; these tracks are mixed from non-transformed sequences separated by chimes.
Samples (Lava Bomb, Glass, Ash, Aero)
Composed by Slavek Kwi in March/April 2012.
Track 2: is a stereo-adaptation of 5.1 surround piece, created for the exhibition of Siobhan McDonald
'Eye of the storm'
premiered in The Galway Arts Centre, Ireland.
is a sound-artist, composer and researcher interested in the phenomena of perception as the fundamental determinant of relations with reality. He has a longstanding fascination with sound-environments, developing what he terms 'electro acoustic sound-paintings' that oscillate between sound only works and interdisciplinary works exploring social, spatial and temporal processes. These complex audio-based situations are created mainly from site specific recordings, resulting in subjective reports for radio broadcast, 'cinema for ears' for multi-channel playback, sound installations integrated into the environment and performances. From the early nineties Slavek has operated under the name Artificial Memory Trace. He facilitates experimental sound workshops with autistic children and those with learning disabilities. The workshop technique emphasises extensive listening and the stimulation of creativity through observation and the support of natural tendencies. Slavek was born in former Czechoslovakia, lived 14 years in Belgium and has been based in Ireland since 2000.
is a visual artist working with paint, sound, photography and drawing. Her recording of the earth's rhythms and it's ephemeral occurrences explores patterns in nature and reveals realities that are otherwise invisible to the naked eye. Recent pieces develop her preoccupation with transformation in manifestations of the explosive, like volcanoes, and the gradual, like the passage of icebergs. Siobhan has exhibited both nationally and internationally and her work is in many private collections around the world.
is an independent software consultant in Iceland. He received a Msc degree in computer science (multimedia applications and virtual environments) at University of Sussex in 2008. When working on the development of the SIL (South Iceland Lowland) earthquake sensor network in Iceland in 1989, Sveinn started developing software and methods to create audible sounds from earthquake sensor data. His earthquake sound creations have been used in multimedia shows at tourist attractions and in the media since 1998.
