Spatial Experiments #3 (2014)


The first monochord prototype features in this installation as a sensor for the acoustic resonances in the space.  When resonance frequencies are detected (through amplitude thresholds in the space) , it triggers events (largely choreographed pure tones) based on the tension and pitch of the string.

As the system adapts to the environment, the speakers move up and down (closer and farther away from the visitors) and in specific height ratios to each other, making subtle changes to the acoustic space.

Spatial Experiments III presents a case for the sympathetic resonance of acoustic and geometric space.  It alludes to Pythagorean harmonicity as an expansive system both in the context of musical production and of the relationships of 3-dimensional space.
