Organised sound (by Gloggomobil, record player, timers and found objects)
Organised sound (by Gloggomobil, record player, timers and found objects) was a kinetic sound installation for Cu, part of FutureEverything new media festival. It combines an interest in old mechanical technology with electronic new media. The Gloggomobil functioned as programmable barrel organs, triggering a hammering action which hit the objects (glasses) and therefore made them resonate. The adapted record player acted as a wet finger to a wine glass, again causing the object to resonate at it’s natural frequency. A motion sensor timer switch caused the electronic objects to stop and start, adding a rhythmic structure to the sounds, which were partly arranged by the artist following existing musical and mathematical systems, and partly dictated by the technologies used.
