Hosted sound artist Jacob Kierkegaard at Queen's University as part of Recomposing the City research group. 9 Oct 2013: Danish artist Jacob Kirkegaard's works are focused on scientific and aesthetic aspects of sonic perception. He explores acoustic spaces and phenomena that usually remain imperceptible to the immediate ear. Kirkegaard's installations, compositions & photographs are created from within a variety of environments such as subterranean geyser vibrations, empty rooms in Chernobyl, a rotating TV tower, and even sounds from the human inner ear itself. For this seminar, Kirkegaard will speak about his recent work. 10 Oct 2013: Based in Berlin, Germany, Jacob Kirkegaard is a graduate of the Academy for Media Arts in Cologne. Since 1995, he has presented his works at galleries, museums, venues & conferences throughout the world. For this event, Kirkegaard has turned his ears inwards: Labyrinthitis is an interactive sound piece that consists entirely of sounds generated in the artist’s auditory organs – and will cause audible responses in those of the audience. The Wire selected a recording of Labyrinthitis as one of the ten best releases of 2008.
