Inside Out is an audiovisual piece which aims to recreate the harmonies that occasionally arise in the city soundscape. Enhancing the dominant frequencies of various noises, the piece creates a 'self-conducted' harmonic noise orchestra.
It shows and tries to harmonise the urban noise from the most audible sources, which are mainly various forms of transportation – planes, cars, trains, motorcycles, boats and other motor devices. The piece uses a multichannel 5.1 surround setup to enhance the perception of sound spatialisation.
Ultimately, the audiovisual work suggests – through enhancing dominant frequencies of noises and rescoring our routine journeys by reproducing those consonances – that we pause our daily lives to pay attention, that we stop and listen to those accidental harmonies that surround us.
