Performance: Kim Cascone ‘Dark Stations’

‘Dark Stations‘ is a work utilizing Schumann resonances, Spricom frequencies, binaural and monaural beat frequencies and spatial effects to induce an altered state in the listener. The event‘s structure is derived from the Fibonacci series.

The audience is seated in a darkened room surrounded by a triangular array of speakers, in the middle is a subwoofer. The audience sits in the center of the triangle and is asked to meditate during the event. After the audience closes their eyes the piece begins.

A low thrumming sound emanates from the subwoofer, filling the area like sonic incense. Then, as the audience is lulled by the infrasonic glow, a pair of sinewaves appear in the front speakers; wavering, wobbling and slowly beating against one another, causing a slight phasic disorientation. These beating sinewaves are then joined by a third in the rear speaker. The room is now filled with an acoustic strobe light – creating sonic moire patterns.

‘Dark Stations‘ is an acoustic mirror, a reflecting pool bringing the audience‘s unconscious to the surface through the technique of entrainment, allowing them to project onto the sonic gauze.

Kim Cascone studied electronic music at the Berklee College of Music and at the New School in Manhattan. He founded Silent Records in 1985 and has released more than 50 albums of electronic music on Sub Rosa, Mille Plateaux, Raster-Noton, Störung and Monotype.

Cascone has performed with Merzbow, Keith Rowe, Scanner, John Tilbury and worked as assistant music editor on two David Lynch films. Cascone founded the .microsound list in 1999, has written for MIT Press and Contemporary Music Review. His writing is included in many books on sound art.
