Abstract or Summary

Noise by Kent Macpherson & Paul Nelson 12-16 August 2019 | Events Room One Wintec According to the World Health Organisation, unwanted auditory stimuli in the form of noise pollution is the number-two threat to public health, after air pollution. And the problem, directly related to anxiety, is getting worse. To really understand how noise may cause harm, we have to look to our ancestors, who evolved in harsh yet quiet environments. Loud noises in this environment most likely caused stress that could affect brain function: thunder, animal roars, screams, or war cries.  Noise seeks to question the conventions of time and space. How much unwanted noise are our brains programmed to filter out? How does constant human din, in both urban and rural environments affect our ability to concentrate, or impact on our levels of stress.  The artists invite the audience to immerse themselves in familiar and unfamiliar spaces. To engage in active listening and viewing. The audience is invited to ponder the relationship between a space’s appearance and its sonic character.  No post processing has been undertaken with either video or audio.
