*New podcast: conversation with cellist and sound artist Anthea Caddy
Anthea Caddy is a Tasmanian-born and now Berlin-based experimental cellist
and sound artist who explores projected sound energy through spatial
practices that highlight acoustic and physical phenomena.
She has a background in media arts and electro-acoustic improvisation and
is currently a PhD candidate under the supervision of media historian
Douglas Kahn. Her work is an ever-expanding practice from the vibrational
body of the cello into multiple amplification systems that harness and
project sound energy.
Anthea’s ongoing research into long-throw sound projection in recent years
has led her to develop a set of parabolic speakers in collaboration with
artist and designer Miodrag Gladović and the Spatial Media Art Labs in
Rotterdam. Throwing beams of sound up to 3 km long and 60 cm in
circumference, this technology broadens the usual boundaries of
installation and performance spaces, expanding the sonic possibilities of
resonant architectural bodies and outdoor environments.
In this podcast, Anthea Caddy
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/sonia-368-anthea-caddy>walks us through her
journey from playing cello in rock bands as a teenager to her ongoing
research into projected sound energy. She explains her long-term research
on directional speakers and the results of the iterations and testing of
the parabolic speakers. She also talks about documentation and about the
difficulties of approaching large-scale sound performance.
