Abstract:

  • Almost any electronic gadget can be transformed into an audible and sometimes rhythmical sound object. “Detektors” presents such a transforming device, making manifest both a cartography of user-generated geolocational sound recordings, logs and walks, which reveal hidden electromagnetic geographies of our urban areas, and a database or catalogue of sonic studies of electromagnetic emissions produced by our everyday electronic devices. At the beginning of the 21st century we are surrounded by ubiquitous electromagnetic oscillations, which are more and more results of computational protocolled processes, which turns them to algorhythms. “Detektors” suggests a new form or methodology of the dérive, possibilities afforded by a novel geophysical terrain. Psychogeophysics meets algorhythmics, as use of the detectors in city space allows for novel city play algorhythms.
