Restored Archeoacoustic Recording Kit and Documentation

Tianna Kennedy and Tarikh Korula
Archaeoacoustic Peripatetics is the search for the sound of New York's unrecorded past in the surfaces of the city's heretofore silent objects and artifacts. Tianna Kennedy and Tarikh Korula created a recording stylus in an attempt to unlock the Archeoacoustic sound dormantly sealed in found and historic objects around New York City. This project chronicles the duo's attempts in a four minute CD of sound, a fieldbook documenting work and the recording stylus itself which is displayed as a sculptural element. Restored Archeoacoustic Recording Kit and Documentation Restored was conceived for the exhibition [Silence] co-organized by free103point9 at Gigantic ArtSpace in New York City (2007.)

Archeoacoustics is an emerging field of study that attempts to recover sounds inadvertently recorded into objects during their creation--for instance, environmental sound recorded into clay through the recording stylus of the potter's finger in the clay itself. The first archeoacoustic experiments were performed by Richard G. Woodbridge, III in 1969 withfurther success reported by Paul Astrom and Mendel Kleiner in 1993.
