Switch Joshua Thorpe

Ce texte n’est pas disponible en français.

Though built from blunt tools, Switch is sonically and conceptually complex. The piece consists of only one signal (white noise coupled with a 660 Hz sign tone) which is switched back and forth from left to right at a decreasing rate as the piece progresses. Listeners report synæsthetic responses such as tingling and hypnogogic imagery, and even believe they are hearing a different pitch in each ear. Switch is a perfect demonstration of Kantian subjectivity; he said that the human can never truly experience the objective world because his or her perceptual system distorts it.
