In 1901 Nikola Tesla published an article in which he describes the possibility to communicate with other planets through radio waves. His hypothesis can be seen as part of a speculative field shaped by spectral theories based on a common ground where scientific and spiritual beliefs were indistinguishable. Are there messages hidden in chemical elements that we could trace though spectral lines? More than a hundred years later intriguing signals coming from the universe challenge skeptics and ask for attention. Are we being mesmerised, our brains directly affected by extraterrestrial electromagnetic radiation?
In Sweden it is possible to observe how the highly charged particles of the solar wind interact with our atmosphere, colliding with oxygen and nitrogen molecules and producing luminous glow and unusual sounds. Our expedition to this region will serve as an experiment to reconnect matter, light and sound, creating a dispositif to generate audiovisual data, that will be recombined in a Ghost Cinema séance.
In our experimental cinema theatre, an object in close proximity to the observer act as a transducer making the conversion of electromagnetic radiation into acoustic waves. This object is our experimental Spectometer, divinatory machine to read encrypted messages through both xamanistic an scientific methods. Combining microphones and a VLF antenna we will explore a very low frequency, looking for embodied messages around the Geomagnetic Pole. This is an invitation to listen to the universe and place planet Earth in perspective, thinking of Anthropocene from an alien viewpoint.
