Live performance, quadrophonic sound


SSSS's sound composition "Genetic Material" focuses on the relationship between organics and sounds. Through synthesizing recording of natural origins, the sound work brings a spatial sound-image of the living biological world that consists of the collective vibrations of thousands of unnamed biological objects. All sounds used in this composition have been recorded from natural sources and through digital processing, the audio has been stretched, bent, cut into unrecognisable fragments. Revealing and concealing the acoustic structures within.


SSSS is a collaboration project between artist Sten Saarits and composer Sven Sosnitski. The duo work with audio-visual space installations. The first collaboration project was an installation piece entitled „SSSSI: TheGreat.wav“ or "The Great Wave" which is represented graphically when writing down both of their initials together.
