A Frozen Sound

Based on the idea that sound can be translated into space by translating its intangible time-based attributes into tangible spatial dimensions, Orproject started investigations into notating sound in three-dimensional form. Using digital processes, various acoustic attributes of a sound can be analysed and extracted. For the piece A Frozen Sound, time, melodic range and peak frequencies have been translated into a multi-dimensional spectrogram. The result is as much an object as it is notation, analysis and representation of the sound.
