OUTPOST – Institute for Transacosutic Research
Founded in 1998 the Institute for Transacosutic Research concentrates on the invention and definition of the term “transacoustics”, which researches the theory that by permanently changing the auditory angle and continually reinterpretating conventional manners of hearing, the borders of the acoustic and the audible can be expanded beyond the threshold of perception.
An extensive booklet is attached to the CD with artwork by Nikolaus Gansterer. The drawings on the booklet were developed in close relation to the sound pieces. The set-up of the musical devices used on the CD acted as the inspiration to these time-based landscape drawings, in which the functional gives way to the fictional. By researching the boundaries between the visual and the acoustic, between line and sound art, the outpost release stands for a consequent restatement of intermedial fields.
