“Tactile headset”, listen with your head

This is the second work created at the residency at Park in Progress (Mons, Belgium), September 2nd-11th 2014. The other installation was “Subverted spatialization interface”, described in a previous post: check it out here.

“Tactile headset” is an installation that explores tactile perception of sound as vibration.

I built a cluster of four vibrating polystyrene spheres, hanging from the ceiling. Sound was traveling from sphere to sphere and the audience could experience it with the bones and skin of their head, as in a tactile quadraphonic headphone set. This work was a way to reference headphone listening (even binaural listening, since there were four sources), but translated into the tactile domain.
