Beautiful circuits by Peter Vogel

‘Duo’ is a beautiful interactive electronic sculpture by Peter Vogel. The components and circuits, normally hidden away in boxes, are displayed in various forms in his art works, exposing their vulnerability to the audience.

Duo is an interactive installation. The sounds coming from the speakers can be influenced by moving in front of the artwork, which almost looks like a note bar from a distance. A score for the electronic music it’s generating. See for more information as well as other pieces by Peter Vogel.


Three Pieces: the plants contuct the music

Three Pieces is designed as a collaboration between robots, traditional instruments, and living things. Robots are playing traditional instruments and they communicate and perform together, conducted by all the living things surrounding them.

Temperature, movement of people and animals and the changing moisture content of the soil of the plants are all measured to influence the music. Due to this combination of factors the music will never be the same twice. Have a look at the Found Electronics website where Ziggy Campbell and Simon Kirby provide a closer look at their remarkable creations.


S0undb1ts by Robin Minard

s0undb1ts, a sound installation by Robin Minard, consists of a web of tiny piezo speakers. s0undb1ts was originally created in 2002 for the Invetionen festival in Berlin. Since then it has been shown in different forms at various places.

This year the project has been revived and the software is rewritten. Instead of mounted on a wall, the speakers are now hanging above the audience, which might create an interesting sonic experience, it also takes away the aesthetic sight of the black speakers on a white wall. On the s0undb1ts website you can see and listen to the newly formed installation.


The Storm by Jack Pavlik

The Storm by Jack Pavlik is a great example of using the characteristic sound of a specific material without a lot of machinery. There's just one band of spring steel, rocking back and forth, powered by a single motor. As you can see the movements are small, yet the sonic effect is overwhelming.

Jack Pavlik made more installations with multiple bands, but I find this one to be a great example of effective use of some basic material. The characteristics of the sound create the feeling of an upcoming storm. The shadows on the wall make it a beautiful thing to look at.


Singing Bizovik bridge by Jodi Rose

Don't bridges look like harps sometimes, like massive instruments of giants? That's what inspired Jodi Rose to use contact microphones to capture the sound of a bridge, as you can see in this video.

What we hear is something new, something we didn't hear before, it's a huge structure that seems to come to live and share its feelings with its haunting voice.

In this particular case the sound was combined with a live cinema performance. Read more about Jodi Rose and hear projects at
