UK. Earchestra is a new vocal work built from tones generated in the inner ear. These tones, called spontaneous otoacoustic emissions (or SOAE), are produced--without external stimulation--in the ears of some people. Whereas the combinations of tones emitted from one ear can be dissonant, microtonal and complex, tones emitted from the other ear can be harmonious and 'in tune'. Each emitting ear produces something akin to an acoustic fingerprint; these are the basis of the composition.
As part of his residency as Sound Artist at St John's College (University of Oxford), Kirkegaard has recorded and collected tones generated inside the ears of students and staff from a wide number of differnet colleges at Oxford. These recorded 'ear chords' were filtered, analyzed, and then interpreted for voices. Earchestra connects two intimate organs of our body: the ear and the throat. The ears are the composers, the throat and mouth are the performers.
Earchestra will be presented live by the very same 30 individuals whose ears produced the tones that are at the heart of the piece. The performance will take place in the Chapel at St. John's College, Oxford University at 7pm on Friday 4th March 2016.
