Untitled Arrangement for Steel and Feedback II
Size: 10′ x 12′ x 9′ installation room
Materials: Sound, Steel, Speakers, Contact Microphones, Audio Hardware
Untitled Arrangement for Steel and Feedback II is a sound-sculpture installation of resonating steel plates with audio feedback. Each hanging steel plate has a contact microphone attached that amplifies ambient noise and plays it back through a speaker attached near the surface of the plate. A feedback loop builds until the steel resonates, creating a fluctuating plateau. Using no pre-recorded audio, the drone is self-sustaining, starting when the piece is turned on and only ending when it is switched off. A fusion of mediums, between object and sound, it is a sensitive, immersive instrument system.
