Laminar - Manifold
Laminar’s sound investigations and amplification of everyday life’s miniscule sounds might resemble another Soleilmoon project, Alp. But Laminar’s agenda is far more malevolent. Inspired by the imperceptible sounds of pollen falling from a flower to the ground, the flutter of insect wings, and the evaporation of water, Laminar has recorded “second order sonoritites” of these sonic phenomena, and expanded them through an aural threshing device. The intense eruption of turbulent noise found on “Sector One” and “Sector Five” from the Ante-Chamber album taps into the physicality of Laminar’s investigations. In effect, Laminar fuses these tiny sounds with a radioactive isotope to document violent breakdown at a molecular level.
