Oorwonde (Earwound) [London]

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

earwound.jpgOorwonde (Earwound) by Laura Maes :: until April 22, 2012 :: Usurp Art Gallery, 140 Vaughan Road, London HA1 4EB, UK.

Oorwonde is an interactive aural installation in which the visitor becomes a willing ‘patient’ to hear, feel, influence and manipulate the soundtrack of a fictitious operation. Speakers, electro-magnets, vibrator motors and piezoelectric disks entwine with the human body, creating a unique composition and performance. Based on Bernhard Leitner’s philosophy that ‘listening is understood to extend to all parts of the body and sound to touch a deep nerve’, Oorwonde explores the concept of bodily hearing as multiple elements target different body parts. Hearing is no longer restricted to the ears. (more…)

A Piano Listening To Itself, inducing Chopin in chords

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

chopin-chord-5med.jpg“Moving across two and a half decades from the windy north Atlantic coast of Canada to the center of Warsaw, the large-scale Aeolian instruments of Gordon Monahan form a temporal bridge between the Fluxus-propelled experimental music of the sixties and seventies and contemporary sound art production. Taking the former’s deconstruction of musical heritage and combining it with an approach closely related to land art, in 1984 Gordon Monahan made his first long string installation in the snow covered plains of New Brunswick. His Long Aeolian Piano had wires 20 to 50 meters long attached to its sounding board. The wires were strung across a field so that, when exited by the wind, they produced Aeolian tones that would travel across the landscape, placing a spell on the quiet Canadian countryside. In 2010 Gordon Monahan produced a new work for the old city center of Warsaw, A Piano Listening To Itself – Chopin Chord. (more…)
