Kim Cascone at Emitter Micro 2013

by emittermicro

Kim Cascone will be performing his unique “Dark Stations” piece at Emitter Micro 2013. “Dark Stations” is a forty-two minute work utilizing Schumann resonances, spricom frequencies, binaural and monaural beat frequencies and spatial effects to induce an altered state in the listener. The event’s structure is derived from the Fibonacci series.

The audience sits in the center of the triangle and is invited to meditate during the event.


“Dark Stations” is an acoustic mirror, a reflecting pool bringing the audience’s unconscious to the surface through the technique of entrainment, allowing them to project onto the sonic gauze. “Dark Stations” could be likened to a scrying mirror into which the viewers unconscious is projected then reflected back to them.

Kim Cascone will perform on the last day of the festival, May 11th, at Ausland.
