This residency will focus on developing a series of short sound pieces called “Airsonic Sculptures” that explore the phenomenon of standing waves, the physical dimensions of sound, and the relationship between frequency, space, and the movement of the listener.

Sound is a physical vibration. Air particles compress and contract – through space – at a length related to its frequency. Low pitches are longer, and higher pitches are shorter. As a sound hits a wall, it bounces off and folds back onto itself, often cancelling itself out and creating regions of silence (nodes) and regions of loud sound (antinodes). These regions can be observed and calculated, and this phenomenon can create something known as standing waves. When walking through a room, a simple tone can sound very loud in certain areas while appearing virtually silent in others.┬áDoron Sadja is fascinated by this relationship between sound and space – this idea that each tone occupies a different physical dimension, and as a result the perception of a sound can be dependent on its relationship to space, location, and movement of the listener. “Airsonic Sculptures” attempt to demonstrate this spatial and sculptural quality of sound as it travels in three dimensions.
