Abstract:

Our idea starts from the necessity to investigate space, explore its features, find the potential in acoustic properties, and use them as a starting point for our research. How is it possible to create a three-dimensional and analog sound system? How are we able to work with instruments that can move sound in space? Taking advantage of the use of customized industrial items, we will have the possibility to create three-dimensional audio images controlled and designed in real-time by the performers. The concept that interests us is the single percussive impulse as a music creator. We can change the surface, and speed of the execution but the impulse is at the core of every percussive action. Solenoids are our artistic medium and the interesting aspect is the relationship between us as human performers and the possibilities that arise through our interaction with a complex mechanical instrument. Thus we see in this instrument an extension of our percussive possibilities.
