Orchestra (2014)

wood, Plexiglas, electronics

 

These electronic instruments were originally part of an interactive sound performance with artist Nicolas Lapointe. During the performance, the artists moved within a small space filled with participants, manipulating the portable electronic sound devices. The objects contain different sensors, which allowed them to respond to the artists’ and participants’ bodies as well as the conditions of the space. Through this process, the artists produced different modulations of sound that mapped the moment of the performance to generate a singular visual and sonic experience.

 

Within the gallery space, viewers were invited to manipulate the hand-held instruments themselves to create high-frequency sounds, either alone or in concert.
