The Subjective Frequency Transducer is a collaborative experiment by Stine Janvin Motland, visual artist Marianne Vierø, and composer and software developer Fredrik Olofsson. As opposed to Janvin Motlands project In Labour, where the live sound of the environments is mixed with the voice of the absent performer, the internal frequencies of the performer is now explored as a musical accompaniment.
Inspired by antique anatomy studies, principles of esoteric science and her own voice physiology, Janvin Motland is looking into the body´s anatomic structure as a potential source of artistic material.
The Subjective Frequency Transducer is both a musical instrument and a measuring device. An interactive sound installation that registers and regenerates the internal resonance of the performer.
The instrument is introduced through a live performance by Stine Janvin Motland, Fredrik Olofsson and audience.
The Subjective Frequency Transducer has been showed at SEAS Speaker Factory in Moss for Ny Musikk´s Only Connect Festival of Sound and at the season opening of Bergen Kunsthall in 2015.
