Aptium proposes an unexpected way to hear and feel sound. The audience is invited to lie down in a hammock equipped with a tiny multi-channel sound system composed by fourteen loudspeakers.
The participant is requested to lie in a hammock, wired in such a way as to make sounds resonate throughout his or her entire body. Fourteen loudspeakers are positioned in the hammock, touching different parts of the body. In this way, the vibrations from the loudspeakers become manifest and the sounds are carried, via the bones, to the inner ear.
Through this audio-tactile experience, our intimate space, the body becomes a resonance box and a changing sound sculpture.
Be aware that it takes about 5 min. to get the equipment on, which someone will help you with. The experience af Aptium has a duration of about 8 min.
