Sonic archeology, essentially, is the exploratory probing of phenomena through sonic amplification, creating audible maps of otherwise un-detectable events in the natural world. Examples range from the early phonographic experiments of Thomas Edison to the more paraphysical realm of EVP (electronic voice phenomena).
This hands-on workshop aims to equip the sonic archaeologist with a range of DIY techniques for forensic examination of the material and immaterial. A series of experimental situations will be established: probing natural micro worlds and the paraphysical, investigation through audible excitation, transformation and detection (ultrasound, infrasound, interference, light, surface playback, electrochemistry). The workshop will equally examine classical techniques of EVP (electronic voice phenomena) as well as new practices suggested by these strategies of detection.
