The Sonic Phantom
Conference: ‘The Sonic Phantom as Perceptual Illusion’

"In my own music making I have been inspired by what appears to be an essential and widespread human technique for the generation of auditory and musical illusions. I like to play with perceptual ambiguity and exploit its potential for producing some strange and curious emergent features.

In this talk I will present a brief general overview of my own work in relation to some different perspectives on the analysis of these kinds of phenomena, as well as a selection of some examples of diverse types of music worldwide - and throughout history - making use of techniques that could be considered as giving rise to ‘sonic phantoms‘.

I use the term ‘sonic phantom‘ to describe an illusion of hearing; something apparently heard but having no physical reality in terms of acoustic waves as perceptive input. Unbeknownst to most people, many cultures worldwide have created music throughout the ages using very different techniques that exploit our pattern-seeking tendencies in order to generate striking auditory phantoms."

Barbara Ellison (Ireland) is a sound and visual artist living and working in The Hague in The Netherlands. Her recent work explores perceptual ambiguity and our propensity and desire as humans to find meaningful patterns in our environment even when none exist.
