Part of The Sound Of One Computer Thinking

Rat laughter

Kathy High (US 2010-2019)

For Rat Laughter Kathy High recorded ultrasonic rat vocalization in a laboratory setting, capturing contented rat utterances. The “rat laughter” is expressed in a frequency not detectable by the human ear. An audio interface pitches the concert towards the human audible spectrum. This project is based on the phenomenon of the contagious nature of laughter.

Kathy High is CfH Festival Fellow. This is a part, organized in collaboration with the Center for the Humanities (CfH) Utrecht University.
