Tin Space. Induction series #4

The series uses a combination of everyday objects, magnets and coils to generate electromagnetic charges. At the same time it explores how sound is created from the generate charge which can resonate in these objects. The floating structure of tin boxes is kept together by strong magnets that create a permanent magnetic field at the same time. Electromagnetic coils move the structure, creating light vibrations that produce sound. The vibrations are amplified acoustically by natural resonances which transform the tin boxes into sound boxes. The work reviews and re-interprets the laws of electromagnetic induction to make sounds.

On The Sensations of Tone

An exploratory exhibition on the propagation of sound in the human body. 'On the sensations of tone' brings together three artists where sound, listening, the ear of the listener and the composer are essential elements in their work. This approach evokes the theories of Hermann Ludwig von Helmholtz (1821-1894) in his seminal work 'The physiological theory of music based on the study of auditory sensations', published in 1865 in Germany. It pays attention to the propagation of sound in the ear and researches the ear as an essential element to compose music.

'Atmosphere for Enjoyment' Exhibition: Harry Bertoia’s Environment for Sound

From May 3 to September 25, 2016, the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC presents two exhibitions focused on Harry Bertoia (1915–1978). Referred to collectively as 'Sonambient, these sculptures are interactive, kinetic, and audible forms consisting of bundles of metal rods that collide and set off radiant tones when agitated by wind or human touch. In his Pennsylvania barn, he recorded approximately 400 tapes, eventually producing eleven LPs with titles such as 'Phosphorescence' and 'Ocean Mysteries'.

The End Of Radio

An audio installation consisting of nearly two hundred microphones on stands, which send out signals instead of receiving them. The energy of the recordings from a street survey, which the artist used for the installation, has been preserved, even though the sound has been transformed so much that you can only hear interference or individual words. The title has been borrowed from a song by the band Shellac which poses the question whether transmission is still possible without any listeners.
