Pendulum Sound Machine is a sound installation created by Kouichi Okamoto as part of an exhibition curated by Designboom, called Yakitate, which is Japanese for ‘freshly baked’. This nice set of pendulums hanging over a record player should sound as good as it looks, but does it?
It really is one of those cases in which the form is well thought out, but the function is neglected. A plate just doesn’t sound as well as a lot of other objects could.
If you insist, here you can have a listen, but I’m afraid you’ll be disappointed:
