“SHRINE: a Torii Gate” by Benoit Maubrey

benoit_maubrey_shrine.jpgSHRINE: a Torii Gate (where the spirits are more likely to hear your prayers) opens at the Kobe Biennale, Japan on September 19, 2015. It is a public interactive sound sculpture that allows spectators to express themselves and play music and messages directly through it.

200 recycled loudspeakers are mounted on a 4 -meter high Torii Gate structure and connected together. Four people can simultaneously be connected to a 8-channel speakers system that allows them to express themselves directly via a microphone input or their smart phones with Bluetooth technology. At the same time the sculpture amplifies “recycled“ electromagnetic waves (white noise): the low-volume sounds are permanently hearable as a “background” sound that changes throughout the day: this is the “pulse” of the sculpture. Additionally SHRINE can also be used as a sound system for concerts, formal occasions and open-air events.

Oorwonde (Earwound) [uk London]

earwound.jpgOorwonde (Earwound) by Laura Maes :: until April 22, 2012 :: Usurp Art Gallery, 140 Vaughan Road, London HA1 4EB, UK.

Oorwonde is an interactive aural installation in which the visitor becomes a willing ‘patient’ to hear, feel, influence and manipulate the soundtrack of a fictitious operation. Speakers, electro-magnets, vibrator motors and piezoelectric disks entwine with the human body, creating a unique composition and performance. Based on Bernhard Leitner’s philosophy that ‘listening is understood to extend to all parts of the body and sound to touch a deep nerve’, Oorwonde explores the concept of bodily hearing as multiple elements target different body parts. Hearing is no longer restricted to the ears. Continue reading
