Sound/Track (2010)

Gordon Snelgrove Gallery, University of Saskatchewan

Sound/Track is a foot-controlled interface that uses local and imported organic matter, sensors and extremely low frequencies ranging from 7.8 Hz to 60 Hz. Impact of participants’ footsteps on the floor-level sound board triggers switches that release sonic frequencies as primary sound which activates matter in four speaker cones as a second layer of sound. Together, preset and chance sound events propose an experimental compositional process.
