What can we learn from the native and pre-objective?


short concept




What can we learn from the native and pre-objective? The knowledge of Amazon tribes,
imparted by Yanomami shaman Davi Kopenawa and written with the words of Western Europeans
by Bruce Albert, states that the Yanomami culture does not own books and libraries. Their
"archive" is the existing Amazon world with all the symbolic meanings. Therefore,
the loss of their habitat as the final effect of brutal deforestation and road building can
be comparable to the loss of electricity, which maintains the paralel digital system and its
vitality in the Western civilization.


The Voyager Golden Records containing an eclectic selection of music, including both Eastern
and Western classical and traditional music, as well as other sounds selected to portray
the diversity of life and culture on Earth, prove a narcissistic presumption about the existence
of Other, capable of decoding the recorded messages. The landing of the space aircraft on
the comet 67P/C-G proved that a space object is not mute but produces low-frequency sound waves.
That gives scientists new insights on comets and help them learn how a completely unknown
structure and substantiality travels through time and space.   


 Sound interactive project with a working title " What can we learn from the
native and pre-objective?" is an opensource software application including a variety
of digital photos which are through temporal periodicity converted into sound patterns.
The latter turn into the basic sound material of the sequencer, which transmits the sound image
to the listener via internet streaming. Digital photos, the frozen images of archeologic nano
territory, where bio-habitat manifests its unyielding nature, transmit the reality into a digital
code. The frozen image creates a distance towards its reality and transforms into a digital
footprint. This particular kind of tautology serves as the "laboratory" isolation of
data and its sonicity. This way an inverse structure of shaman reality is formed, which sounds
its nature in virtual internet structure. Via streaming it reveals how "unsubstantiality"
of digital information travels through time and space. As the distribution goes with the flow of
virtual dimension, its uniqueness is never archived. Our committment to constant opening of our sound
imagery and exposing it to a variety of intertwining actions within and beyond the human existence
shows how fragile and complex are bonds that exist in relations with plants, animals, geologies,
atmospheres, people and data, as well as in various combinations of one another.

software code designed by Matjaž Lenhart inspired by:



the main operation of the designed interface has been capturing spatial data dimension and them properties of the selected geographic location on the map. geographical spatial data were showing the location coordinates, while the information associated with spatial properties actually means speed of the winds and the sea. location on the map I was selected on the basis of daily reports, where the greatest concentration refugee crossing the sea happened. so these data were influenced at sonic character of a performance.  so I was like this tragic event to give an emotional touch. I am fully aware of the problematic nature of these statements, but I also think it is necessary to talk about it on an artistic way too.





still work in progress. it's a site for puredata sounds and intervetions
