Works by Ziggy LeverZiggy Lever’s (New Zealand) elegant sound installation title (to be specified) (2017) creates a sonic field that intertwines unimaginably distant events with live human actions. Lever collected three years of data from the LIGO and VIRGO observatories, which document the gravitational wave activity of black holes and neutron stars. Lever sonifies this data and modulates the sound with analog synthesizers, filling the gallery a velvety soundscape of peals, bloops, and clicks. Visitors’ movements trigger additional sounds, which may take effect immediately or much later. The effect is of playing sonic dice with the universe.
