GX Jupitter-Larsen & Jessica King, Facts on the Polywave.

Broadcast live on air in 5.1 Surround Sound and on line: Ö1 Kunstradio – Radiokunst, October 22nd, 2006
GX Jupitter-Larsen is among the pioneers of noise. Back in 1979 he formed the now legendary noise band ‘The Haters’ in New York. In his live performance on Kunstradio, to the sound of a relentlessly noisy clock, he and his assistant Jessica King set up a small record player with a turntable made of sandpaper, a transistor radio and two shovels with contact microphones attached in order to put into practice what he means by his so-called ‘theory of the polywave’. This theory is about the nature of sounds and considers noises as simultaneous movement in all directions. It postulates that each individual direction is a cross-section of a larger cumulative effect. The theory goes on to state that everything except for nothingness moves as part of the polywave. The way one measures the polywave is by comparing unconnected entities. That is by comparing the polywave (movement) to nothingness (stillness). GX Jupitter-Larsen goes further to say that: 
“If clocks indicate not a movement of time, but the metabolism of the person perceiving the clock in motion, then time would be a stationary void located in between the passing of events. And anti-time then as the velocity metabolism.”
