“The general acoustic environment of a society can be read as an indicator of the social conditions which produce it and may tell us much about the trending and evolution of that society.” (Murray Schafer)
A.O.S.C. is a autonomously working networked system which uses the unique acoustic environments of 5 remote places to compose a new abstract environment in a 6th place.
blackhole-factory has sent out 5 microphone agents to locations in different countries where they are continuously registering the current soundscape, analyzing the sound spectrum and streaming the results into the installation space.
These data are interpreted by a central computer with regard to frequency, texture and synchronicity of events. The emerging space encompasses soundscape, light, the movement of a machine and 3d printed objects.
