Weeping Bamboo: Resonances from Within is an exploration of digital media for communicating and preserving indigenous forms of oral culture. It is a locational sound art piece offering a site-specific, reactive soundscape that can be experienced in public at the Plaza de Bolívar. Building on the notion of “resonance,” the correlated vibration of bodies, as a way of transmitting sonic and gestural experiences, the project creates a rich layering of the different stages of history of Manizales through an augmented reality experience that merges environmental sounds with a spatialized soundscape, which, through a custom-made headset, is transmitted through the bone structure of the skull, merging with the environmental sounds perceived through the ear, with the multi-channel soundscape that seems to be coming from the space within the listener’s head. Beginning with narratives of indigenous myths all the way to todays environment the project offers a narrative soundscape that is correlated with the actual geography of the plaza through a GPS location-tracking unit, inertial sensors and a microphone.
