Sound is a variation of pressure in a medium, such as liquids of the human body. Sound does not propagate in a vacuum. The smallest sound perceived by the human ear is 0.000000002 kilopascals. This smallest sound moves the tympanic membrane by about a millionth of a millimeter. The tympanic membrane ruptures at about 100 kilopascals. The eruption of the volcano Krakatau in 1883 produced a pressure wave of 63,245,553 kilopascals. In the summer of 2020, I built a small speaker out of concrete that, just before breaking, was able to produce 0.0141 kilopascals. After that, it was silent, as the voice coil had melted.
Tatu Nenonen is a sound designer. Nenonen works in the arts by producing audible and vibrating material. In Nenonen’s works, sound is a physical and a sculptural element.
