12.36 Åke Parmerud, La Vie Meqanique, 11' EAM
The primitive sense – How the process of thinking can blunt the
intellect when the map is considered more real than the terrain. Lecture
by and discussion with Susanna Sandström, psychologist.
The way we are thinking is often getting nowhere
when it comes to describing our reality. To be able to move on we have
to broaden our process of thinking, think in new ways – more intuitive
and emotional since there are so much going on in our society at different
levels. How do you interpret the reality when there are multiple realities
existing at the same time and to that multiple interpretation ways? The
lecture resulted in a discussion on the topics: Who has interpretation
superiority? When is the map considered more real than the terrain?

19.30 ADRA-SEMINAR 2
Lecture by and discussion with Peter Bryngelsson, composer and lecturer
and Sten-Olof Hellström, composer and scientist.
Sten-Olof Hellström: You see what you hear – acoustic optical-
and auditorial illusions. Sten-Olof Hellström talks about and examplifies
how different sounds affect our experience of the world.
Peter Bryngelsson: Music and torture – Two phenomenons that often
are interpreted as contrasts. One is nice and good the other is injurious.
This lecture will show facts on how direct and commonly occuring the link
between music and torture really is. Peter Bryngelsson has during several
years made interviews with both victims of torture and with those who
torture and are now showing the result.
The discussion was characterised by issues concerning
how things can be confusing when people are convinced that they have heard
something they in fact have seen or how music normally associated with
pleasure can be used in the opposite purpose. Other arising issues were
how research with obvious good intentions, such as curing of diseases,
later have been used to develop bio-weapons!

Lecture by and discussion with the participants in the Tyst Ljudskulptur
(Silent Soundsculpture)project:Sven Johansson, scientist at Blekinge Tekniska
Högskola, Sten-Olof Hellström composer and scientist and Peter
Sven Johansson: Sounddesign – Engineering. The lecture takes us
on an acoustic trip in our environment. Sounddesign or quality of sound
has become more and more important for a durable acoustic environment.
An improved acoustic environment will not only eliminate sounds but also
create sounds that are appealing. Sounds can be irritating, informative
and impressing. The right sound in the right environment creates a feeling
of well-being, comfort, quality and luxury.
Sten-Olof Hellström: Loud-speaker instead of monitor. A lecture on
sonification and soundinterfaces. Do one really have to use graphic interfaces
on everything or are there situations when it is better to use sound to
visualize and to supply information?
After the presentations the advantages of interdisciplinary projects were
discussed and how important it can be to switch perspective without renouncing

Sum up of the workshops and seminars
The sum up of Plats schhh… was carried out by a walk along
the notice-board together with visitors at the exhibition, where the documentation
of the events of Plats schhh… were presented in chronological
order. The participants told each other about the events and used the
documentation at the notice-board as an audio-visual material. From a
new and a perhaps wider perspective discussions from previous seminars
started once again. After several vividly debates smaller groups were
formed where the discussions continued.
