Small Sonorities (2017-2018)

As a series, Small Sonorities explores sound relations and resonance using digital signal, physical interfaces and materials in installation and performance. (Also see PERFORMATIVE.)

Small Sonorities: A Pen. A Sponge, 2017

This series explores the acoustic properties of materials as a study of sound relations. Low frequency signal transferred to physical interfaces via vibrotactile transducers triggers material events resulting in kinetic sonic performance. The rhythmic composition fluctuates through cycles of frequency modulation and material sonic actions.

Base frequencies relate to states of mind and body and the Earth’s electro-magnetic field. Kinetic and sonic actions of materials add a layer of analog sound. The empirical combines with experimental play in an endless loop of recurring signal.
