I’ve spent this week working out what I really want my honours project to achieve.
Making banana paper, of course. Sound vibrations in water. Cymatics. Influences: German photo artist Alexander Lauterwasser whose book Water Sound Images has inspired me to undertake this project. 
Today I created my first wave file with sonic visualiser.
It was my studio buddy’s birthday, so this is the wave image of us singing happy birthday to her. What a great way to check the recording equipment.
And of course readings: from the Sound Studies Reader a great quote from Steve Goodman…..
“An ontology of vibrational force delves below a philosophy of sound and the physics of acoustics toward the basic process of entities affecting other entities…What I prioritized here is the inbetween of oscillation, the vibration of vibration.”
