[in]audible is a sound piece based on the exploration of hidden acoustic spaces. Departing from the notions of indirect listening and blind field recording, unconventional listening technologies have been used to capture phenomena beyond the thresholds of our perception.
Magnetic fields, vibrating structures, infra, ultrasonic and underwater sound have been amplified and used as source material in the composition, focusing on the spatiality and textural patterns of the original recordings.
Sounds recorded between 2008 and 2012 in natural and built environments in Karlsruhe, Germany; Den Haag, The Netherlands; Bratislava and Mala Fatra, Slovakia; Madrid and Sant Bartomeu del Grau, Spain.
Pablo Sanz is a Spanish sound artist currently based in The Netherlands. His activities are engaged with the act of listening and the exploration of aesthetic and spatial aspects of sound through phonography, site-specific installations, live performances and fixed media works.
