Gushchyan, Arman: TRANSIT 



Basic information



  • Program notes: 

    The sound installation TRANSIT explores intersection of different sonic spaces. Being placed between two (or more) different sonic environments (in the doorway), it collects sounds, that in their natural flow of change create the raw dramaturgy of live events, which then through specially tuned algorithm of parameter changes are fully merged and turned into one digital and complex sonic realm through granulation processing. This sound is propagated omnidirectionally through a simple object of a table, which becomes a sound source itself by the means of an electro dynamic exciter.
    Additionally, an electrostatic transducer creates an invisible sound corridor by streaming a narrow directional sound of a different type – a melodic flow of harmonic instrumental sound. It represents the phenomenon of the “wave” (in contrast to the “grain”), which cuts through the granulated digital sound space. The sound observer goes through the hall, experiencing a passage through physically and aesthetically different sound spaces.

  • Technical specs: 

    2 variants of the sound installation are possible:
    interactive* and non-interactive

    Necessary equipment (for the interactive version a * stays)
    1. Computer *with an audio input port or an external audio interface
    2. * 1 mono condenser microphone
    3. Hi-fi Amplifier (2 channels)
    4. Table (a light wooden IKEA type) or any other casual object with a large wooden surface, placeable in the middle of a public space
    5. 2 exciters to be fixed underneath the wooden surface of the table
    6. 1 electrostatic transducer
    7. Wires



Total number of musicians: 
2-channel electronics
