We're introducing Sonar Cosmia_ZODIAC, a special edition CD by Malu Laet.
The work is an edition of 12 CDs for the 12 astrological signs of the zodiac.
As per Malu Laet and Stanley J Buglass' installation at 213 Kupfer earlier this year, this sonar edition is the celestial data of the exact coordinates to the space at the exact date the performance took place.
[☉, ☽] 25/03/202110:00:00-16:00:00 51°32'49.8"N 0°02’52.1”W, is the sonification of the March 25th 2021 sun☉ and moon☽ transition, as seen from the location of the 213 Kupfer Project Space.
Sonar Cosmia_ZODIAC uses the data of 12 natal-charts, one from each zodiac-sign, and translated into sounds signals. It is based in the planets frequency of the Sun☉, Moon☾, Mercury☿, Venus♀, Mars♂, Jupiter♃, Saturn♄, Uranus⛢ and Neptune♆,using the Cosmic Octave formula. The planets orbit duration determines the BPM.The zodiac signs Aries♈︎, Taurus♉︎, Gemini♊︎, Cancer♋︎ , Leo♌︎, Virgo♍︎, Libra♎︎, Scorpio♏︎, Sagittarius♐︎, Capricorn♑︎, Aquarius♒︎ and Pieces♓︎ that are reworked and transposed into a circle of fifths, a music scale that determine the relationship between 12 different pitches. These tonal frequencies are turned into oscillators. Based on an individual birth chart configuration, an additive synth is made with each planet frequency + their personal sign in the retrospective planet, creating a total of 9 different oscillators for each person. The birth location’s latitude determines the intensity of the frequency of the Sun and Moon. And the longitude determines the phase shift of the oscillation divided in East and West.
