During the residency at Park in Progress (Mons, Belgium), September 2nd-11th 2014, I was able to produce two new sound installation involving contact speakers.
In “Subverted spatialization interface”, one of the two new works, I used three vibrating devices under a 70×70 cm wooden board. The devices were shaking the board at 30 and 60 Hz.
The piece was shown during the European night of young creation (Sept. 11th) and the documentation video was exhibited 14th-27th September (Site des anciens abattoirs, Mons).
“Subverted spatialization interface” is an ironic installation which presents a real-world version of the software interface used by electroacoustic musician to spatialize sound, often represented on computer screens as a circle that the musician can move within a square. In this installation, the spatialized vibration under a square wooden board causes a little ball to stroll around. The dimensions of visual input and audio output are then subverted: imperceptibly spatialized sound is the cause which produces visual, concrete results.
Realized at the Park in Progress sound art residency 2014 in Mons (Belgium).
