Soft Revolvers

A music performance for four acryl spinning tops. Each spinning top, 10’ in diameter, is associated with an ‘instrument’ or part in an electronic music composition. Gyroscopes and accelerometers communicate with a computer where the motion data is collected (speed, instability, acceleration, etc.) which is used for a music algorithm. LEDs placed inside the tops illuminate the body of the objects in counterpoint to the music. A camera placed above the performance table provides a video projection behind the artist, as an integral part of the performance. The behaviour of the objects adds unpredictability and makes each performance unique. #MyriamBleau #SoundArt #PerformanceArt #SpinningTop #Turntabllism #MusicPerformance #ContemporaryArt #DJ #HipHop #ElectronicMusic #VideoArt

The installation uses Bell's photo-acoustic principle. It follows the trajectory of the sun, catching the sunlight and focusing it, via a parabolic lens, onto one point. A rotating disk chops the light up into small fragments. A photo-acoustic cell transforms these fragments into sound, made audible by a large horn. The tonality of the installation changes with the intensity of light.
