Interactive Sound Sculpture
A series of Glockenspiel keys (arranged in the harmonic series) are suspended over a fish tank, semi-submerged in water. The tank has hydrophones in which pick up any sound emanating through the water. This sound is passed through a series of electronics which regurgitate the sound randomly chopped up and slowed down (re-pitched in lower 5ths and octaves) to create a rich harmonic texture, controlled by the user.
Created by Jamie Cook for The Occasion Collective's 'Waterchimes and the Bottomless Pit of Outros' at 36 Lime Street (26th May - 4th June 2017).
Later developed for 'Echoes of Abstraction II and the Bottomless Pit of Outros' at the Laing Art Gallery (22nd July - 20th August 2017).
