Speed of Sound - Aerodynamics and experimental acoustics
Speed of Sound interprets a history of aero-acoustic advancement through a half-day of talks and performances reactiviating the decommissioned space of Q121 and remarkable air return duct. Manipulation of acoustics plays an important role for twenty-first century developments in aviation and experimental music. Investigating ideas of noise and turbulence, and approaches to sensing and recording, this event converges findings in aerodynamics and experimental sound practices as invited artists and speakers engage with the physical uses of sound.
Teleplasmiste (Mark Pilkington/ Strange Attractor with Michael J York)
Testing the space with an experimental demonstration of standing waves and resonant frequencies in the unique acoustic environment of the tunnels.
Aki Pasoulas & Paul Fretwell (MAAST)
Testing the limits of the Kent University's full panoramic Genelec sound system installed throughout the event spaces, through a diffusion in acousmatic composition.
Sound as Terror (Royal College of Art)
A presentation of sonic research into the use of drones in contemporary conflict.
Graham Rood (PHD Sound & vibration research / wind tunnel engineer / FAST Museum)
An introduction to the history and practice of aeroacoustic research in the wind tunnels at Farnborough.
When & Where
Artliner, an organisation which stages art experiences around the world, will this year launch The Wind Tunnel Project. Opening on the 9th of June 2014 for six-weeks, the inaugural exhibition will be housed in and around 1917 and 1935 Grade 1 and 2 listed buidling which will open to the public for the first time in history.
