Parhelia by Amund Ulvestad @ANX
'Parhelia' by Amund Ulvestad (NO)
'Parhelia' is an optical phenomenon which occurs under very cold conditions. Sunlight reflected by ice crystals can make colourful light spots appear on both sides of the sun, giving the impression of multiple suns appearing across the skyline. Ulvestad’s installation engages in a similar type of doubling by capturing the sound from a software controlled cymbal with ten directional microphones. By capturing soundwaves from several different directions at once and playing back the sound in real-time ‘Parhelia’ allows for a multi-layered and complex soundscape based on multiple listening positions in the same room.
