Experimental physicist Carl Haber restores antique audio recordings too old, fragile, or damaged to be otherwise replayed—including recordings made in wax, soot, and foil. Using optical scanning technologies from his work at CERN in Switzerland, Haber has recovered and preserved a diverse collection of deteriorating sonic artifacts, voices from the past that otherwise would have been lost. The second season of Resonance kicks off with Oakland-based sound-making duo Black Spirituals. Their music is an ecstatic intersection of the tone-generating electronics and guitars of Zachary James Watkins, and the heart-thumping acoustic percussion of Marshall Trammell. Sound artists Shane A. Myrbeck and Emily Shisko elaborate on their thought process behind their interactive sound installation, Fathom: Self-Assembling Music. This art work was presented in the Exploratorium's Kanbar Forum in 2013 and into 2014. Developed in the early days of electronic instruments, the ondes Martenot, characterized by a fragile and intricate design, produces a wholly unique and deeply evocative sound that transfixes musicians and listeners alike. How can a bugle make so many notes even though it has no valves? We’ll find out about how waves can fit into pipes, strings and rods in this webcast.
