installation, Trondheim's Art
The previous project "Homage
Jackson Pollock" covered a two dimensional sound space,
the canvas. A natural next step was to create a volume of sound.
9 synchronized sound channels were used to create a sound sculpture.
The original sound was a recording of a humming Bumble-Bee.
When a visitor entered the room a sensor
started the sound and the sculpture was invoked. "A humming
Bumble-Bee circled around" the visitor as long as he/she was
in motion in the center of the room. The loop sound lasted for 6
seconds but was repeated infinitely if continuously triggered
The sound volume was created by modulating
a mono recorded sound in a custom software. The Artist could place
the nine speakers on the computer screen and then draw the volume.
Every output sound were burned into 1Mbit EPROM and placed on a
custom made circuit board. The p.c.-boards were mounted behind a
Plexiglas sandwich for the visitor to examine.
