Sound Installation . 2014 – ongoing
Copper Pipes . Glassware . Fans
Aerophon is an ongoing artistic reserach which explores the production of aeolian sounds.
Basically the installation is made out of a modular pipe system and one or two fans. Through the pipe system the air flows to glass vessels, where the airflow is redirected through a kind of labium and produces a sound.
In this installation, I try to use the architectural structures and site-specific givens to connect or to interact with.
The Aerophon is basically based on the principle of the organ. By filling the bottles or carafes with liquid, the installation can be tuned, which changes the tone and the pitch. The use of different objects made of different materials changes the timbre.
