Long-Wave Synthesis, Ten-channel infrasound installation, Australiehaven, Duration variable, 2015
Raviv Ganchrow’s work explores spatial-material domains of sound as a site inextricably bound to the contexts and techniques of its production and circulation. Sound’s spatial manifestation – the prime territory of action – is a means for navigating these contextual intricacies, which are systematically examined through writing and the development of beam-forming and oscillation-sensing technologies. This approach experiments with hearing at the intersection of distributed human, temporal and geophysical agencies. The specific conditions of sonic appearance become a continuous field in which attention, surrounding and subjectivity are mutually conductive. Recent installations create in-situ circuits patched through materials and structures that expose latent operative formations of the locale.
