A State of Amplitude focuses on the potential of re-amplifying the micro-powers of vibrating matter. Departing from the idea of a membrane as a selective instrument, excerpts of sounds are filtered, distorted and amplified. In these sonic architectures, an unfolding dimension arises, re-fabricating it into a composed reality. Through entering this space of vibrations an identification assembles between listeners and elemental matter, between inside and outside, between hallucination and realism.
For Rewire Festival, Quartair is collaborating as exhibition site with A State of Amplitude, a show with sonic sculptures, instruments and sound transmitting vessels.
