Infinite Music Machine brings together four artists who are exploring experimental approaches to sound through instrument building and installations.
Expect a wondrous world of automated contraptions, supermagnets, long wires, pingpong balls, multi-speaker sculptures, cellular automata and electronics. They will be creating an exhibition of constantly transforming kinetic sculptures that explore the chaotic interplay between sound, light, air, water and electricity.
The Location Sound Films project starts with the concept of site-specific artistic activity while integrating contemporary sound recording practices that cross the areas of 'performance', 'field recording', 'improvisation' and 'documentation'. With the site being the prime focus, the artist as actor and instigator uses the means of sound to investigate the qualities of a specific context and his or place in it. Various techniques are used to make recordings, some more clearly visible than others, depending on the type of sound captured (stereo condenser microphones or contact microphones). For this installation, a selection of my films has been edited as a multi-screen, multi-channel environment that plays on random, creating a continually shifting chance composition.
