site-adaptable sound installation with an ensemble of 4 instruments. It plays a composed piece using and interacting with materials found on site. There is a fan that rattles seed pods, an instrument with 3 metal tubes that are lifted and dropped onto a slab of stone and 2 solenoids that tap on wooden boards. Awkward, non-outdoorsy mechanisms timorously trying to find their way out of the studio and into nature while singing a tune.
installation at I-Park Residency, July 2012.
many thanks to I-Park and its staff.
