Anemos Sonore prototypes

The work on Anemos Sonore is a speculative investigation into a hypothetic research culture in which sound and signals are the primary source for evidence. Instead of (averaged) constant values, in such a place, signals are considered the smallest meaningful parts of data. Among others, this requires to re-think existing observation tools. The developed hardware consists of a tensioned ribbon with a magnetic, weighted center element arranged between two electromagnetic coils. When put into wind, the ribbon starts to flutter and induces a constantly change of the electromagnetic field that is tightly coupled to the wind. This fluttering creates an electric signal in the coils that then can be captured, recorded, processed and listened to. Until now, Anemos Sonore were tried in two different scenarios: One incorporating the development of scientific tools for locative wind investigations, one featuring site-specific installations, which alter the sonic and visual experience of visitors in order to allow them for an alternate environmental experience, adding tightly integrated semi-artificial keynote sounds to the natural environment.
