Here’s story about three dogs.
An American dog, a Polish dog and a Russian dog.
They are all having a visit, and the American dog was telling them how things were in his country.
He said, “You know, you bark… after you bark long enough, then somebody comes along, gives you some meat.”
And the polish dog said, “What’s meat?”
And the Russian dog says, “What’s bark?”.
Ronald Reagan – President of the United States

Intersections



A loudspeaker is installed on the side of a straight road. It diffuses a constant stream of white noise. The loudspeaker is positioned in such a way that the projection of white noise is perpendicular to the direction of the cars. The audience stands opposite to the loudspeaker on the other side of the road.

When a car drives on the road, it intersects the projection of white noise. In this way the audience can perceive a cut in the white noise continuum. The sequence of cuts is organized in relation to the number, speed and size of cars that pass on the road.

The intersection between white noise and cars generates sound effects of masking, cut-out and cross-fade
