Neuroplanets' is a project by Novi_sad (Thanasis Kaproulias) which explores the aesthetics of information on sound. Initially based on multiple ways of audio analysis in rare sonic phenomena taking place on other planets, this project has been developed and executed by applying data and numerical elements from Neurosciences, on tracks commissioned from BJ Nilsen, Daniel Menche, Francisco López and Mika Vainio.
Neuroplanets is the follow up of Inhumane Humans (Sub Rosa New Series Framework 3/SR301).
'Novi_sad is the mutated body that stands on the tips of it's toes to look over a wall of white noise. It reaches the edge, almost getting a glimpse of what is on the other side. It almost sees. And when it almost sees,
then it hears. And when it hears, it hears the sudden attack of static. And as it hears it looks: the sky is static and falls like a sonic ceiling collapsing on its sole inhabitant: Novi_sad. Novi_sad is the sound of the shadow of the body that faces the wall of sound. The mutated body steps back from the wall. It is not a wall,
it is a mirror. The mutated body looks at itself. It sees: an open mouth that is shouting to itself and is not heard, it sees closed ears bleeding for themselves that do not hear.
It says: lift sonic ceilings up over my head, push them up over the sky, as far as my arms can reach, as far as my eyes can see. I will hear, I will here.'
The tracks have been manipulated and produced by using the following info / data:
Trak 1/ Audio analysis on: Winds, sandstorms, and dust devils, which are little tornadoes caused by local weather patterns in Mars
Applied data from: Functional anatomy of schizophrenic patients with auditory hallucinations
Trak 2/ Audio analysis on: Ghostly planetary plasma waves from NASA
Applied data from: Patterns of music agnosia associated with middle cerebral artery infarcts
Trak 3/ Audio analysis on: Whistle of ultra-cold liquid helium-3 that changes volume relative to the North Pole and Earth’s rotation
» Applied data from: : Rightward and leftward bisection biases in spatial neglect
Trak 4/ Audio analysis on: Decametric noise storms and radio storms on Jupiter
Applied data from : Neuroimaging with bipolar disorder and children with serious emotional disturbances
Cover image was designed by utilizing human brain anatomy data to generate a 3D point cloud that evokes neural network activity and astronomical imagery
