CatIII ILS 2020

Pitch Shifting Group – CatIII ILS

ILS also known as ”Instrument Landing System” which assists the plane pilots to land in intense fog conditions or zero visibility.

ILS system operates as a ground-based instrument approach system that provides precision lateral and vertical guidance to an aircraft approaching and landing on a runway, using a combination of radio signals and, in many cases, high-intensity lighting arrays to enable a safe landing during instrument meteorological conditions (IMC), such as low ceilings or reduced visibility due to fog, rain, or blowing snow.

FRB-07 2020

Except coming from a rapidly rotating celestial body, like a magnetar or quasar it’s believed also that fast radio bursts could be of extraterrestrial origin. Originally, the bursts were thought to be the product of a massive, one-time cosmic event like the formation of a black hole from the collision of two neutron stars, but the recurrence of the bursts over the years negates that theory. Other theories have posited that it could be the result of matter being sucked into a black hole, but it seems like with all of our research on black holes, we would have experienced this phenomenon before, having trained telescopes on areas where black holes have been found. And while most scientific stalwarts have rejected the ETI hypothesis, there hasn’t yet been a solid practical explanation. The first FRB (Fast Radio Burst) was discovered in 2007. In 2019, the CHIME collaboration discovered a new set of eight repeating bursts for follow-up analysis.

Pitch Shifting Duo is part of a larger multidisciplinary project – PitchShifting Group. Visual programming, while musical interactivity, has beencrucial to Pitch Shifting latest practice. Leaded by a Berlin based saxophonist and composer Grgur Savic, group explores a different types of today’s technology together with live electro-acoustic instruments to deliver high quality musivisual language. Although this group started performing pure electro-acoustic improvised sets, new journey begins with a new member, visual artist Sanja Star. Group sets itself into the new dimension creating improvised audio-visual set.
Pitch Shifting Duo – Sanja Star & Grgur Savic – explores new media in visual art and music. After creating digital collages and animations Sanja Star is using her own visual instrument to create live visuals with visual programming. Through coding, Sanja is creating a set of visual semiotic system that is the synchronous union of music and image. In response to visual improvisa
