BODIES AND SUBWOOFERS (B.A.S.) is an ongoing investigation of the possible interactions between sub-bass, bodies, and subwoofers via a series of site-specific sound installations composed of subwoofer arrangements and sub-bass. Throughout organized sub-bass frequencies spoke by subwoofers, Stefanie Egedy explores how this particular frequency-range communicates with multiple types of bodies – not only human bodies, but also structural aspects of the space where the installation is presented, informing correlations between sound and constructional features (dimensions, materials, walls, columns, and floor). Often without conscious awareness, bodies cultivate automation of perception. While usually inattentive to the complex network of physical resonances in its environment, bodies are sensitized through the materiality of larger sound waves. How interactions with sub-bass, and subwoofers offer new possibilities in creating and experiencing realities?
