“> 19980” imagines a soundscape of the inaudible. With video projections, the work plays with the displacement of frequency spectrum and celebrates a tremendous fantastical expansion of human auditory territory. Infrasound and ultrasound from field recordings, including that of Alaskan orcas, Southwestern Chinese roosters, and New York City subway, will all be squeezed into the human hearing range of 20Hz and 20kHz, while the singer's voice is live digitally processed into something quite alien.
