On Saturday 30th October, Professor Linda Doyle, artists Sven Anderson and Rachel O’Dwyer (CTVR- TCD), Marie Redmond (TCD) and guest artist Shintaro Miyazaki (Humboldt University Berlin) made a series of short presentations on Spectrum, focusing on ideas of invisible, electromagnetic and audio space across the fields of Art, Design and Engineering, as part of the Darklight festival.

Using custom made ‘detektors’ that sonify electromagnetic emissions, participants were invited to go out into the city and listen to the soundscape, and if possible make recordings. Miyazaki provided all those interested to share a ‘detekor’ and explore the ‘invisible’ sounds of the electromagnetic city.
