aluminum vibraphone bars, shells, meccano wheels, DC motors, wood, fishing line, metal hooks, fan.
Every shell has unique dimensions which, in turn, give it unique resonant properties. Put another way, every shell ‘hears’ and ‘amplifies’ sound according to its own character. In this work the specific resonant frequency of each shell is matched to the equivalent tone produced by a continuously bowed vibraphone bar. The shells are set in motion by the wind, creating shifting patterns of sound and harmony.
