Jacob Kirkegaard

Danish sound artist Jacob Kirkegaard explores sound in art with a scientific approach. He focuses on the scientific and aesthetic aspects of resonance, time, sound and hearing. His installations, compositions and performances deal with acoustic spaces and phenomena that usually remain imperceptible.

Listen in as Artist Jacob Kirkegaard tells of his journey to hear himself hear. With the aid of researchers in Copenhagen, Kirkegaard generates an artificial tone in his own ear by playing two tones at a precise ratio. He has developed this phenomenon into an interactive sound piece he calls Labyrinthitis.
