Acoustics based on volume: aluminum


IDEA: An instrument based on basic shapes, volume and resonance.

WHAT: Three geometric objects out of aluminium: a sphere, a cube and a tetrahedron, they all have the same volume. Together they form a new instrument which shows how form changes its acoustic characteristics by using its individual resonance. With the use of electronics the shapes can be used as instruments or acoustic (reverb) chambers. 

WHY: A work made for performance, as well as research, with an interets in the language of bodies, inspired by Harry Partch.
