Untitled Arrangement for Steel and Feedback
November 2000: 10' x 12' x 9' installation room
- Medium/Materials: sound, steel, speakers, microphones, audio hardware
Untitled Arrangement... 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.
