March 28th 2PM: Nacht und Nebel with Martin Kuentz.u.a. [with performance 9PM] 

Ultrasound, ultrasonics or hypersonics specifies a domain beyond
hearing, beyond or breaking a necessarily arbitrary limit of the
audible (around 20 KHz), with a relation to the
visible. Ultrasound implies a revealing of space (the
rangefinder, echolocation techniques employed by bats, whales and
fish), exploration and penetration of opaque media (diagnostic
sonography), as well as a rendering opaque through the creation
of fogs from the interaction of higher frequency pressure and
various liquids. Hypersonic phenomena produce psychological reactions
and are implicated as transmission means within the conspiratorial
world of mind control and the other breakthrough of EVP/ITC.

Crossing this audible boundary, ultrasound inspires a domain
transformation, a potential for transmission and reception, and
an interference which can be explored within sound making and
audiovisual cross border investigation. Experimenters within this
workshop will build and play with ultrasound transducers,
amplifiers and frequency converters. The workshop will close with
all participants in open Nacht performance at micro_research

Fee: 10 euros (inc. all parts, food). Performance: free.

Workshops led by field-expert practitioners extend over realms of code
and embedded code, environmental code, noise, transmission and
reception, and electromysticism. Workshops solely utilise free
software and GNU toolbase.
