! at TodaysArt Festival

This weekend I visited the TodaysArt festival in The Hague. The festival explores the newest forms of art, music and technology. After having some fun with RovoVox, a giant 8 meter tall robot that will speak any text you send via SMS, I entered the impressive Atrium, The Hague’s city hall to be surprised by !

! is an installation by sound artist and researcher Anke Eckardt, which explores her theory of ‘vertical hearing’. Every three minutes a sound comes from above and ‘drops’ into a puddle of black water. It seems like an invisible object causes the splash, yet it must be a huge woofer beneath the surface.

I have to apologize for the low sound quality, the movie was shot with my iPhone, and the built in microphone is not as good as I would like it to be. Especially the sound at the end was a very impressive ‘boom!’, rattling the windows, even at the other side of the building. It is beyond the iPhone’s capabilities to capture these low frequencies.
