Five Movements for Five Sampled Sounds in Five Loud Speakers

fives

Last Tuesday I performed a sound art installation titled, Fives, at the University of Minnesota. The subtitle of the work is, Five Movements for Five Sampled Sounds in Five Loud Speakers. To produce the sound for the work I used the wavetable glitch machine that I have discussed in a number of recent entries, controlled over a wireless network with an iPod Touch running TouchOSC. The sound objects generated were amplified through five distinct loud speakers arranged on pedestals at about chest height in a pentagonal configuration.

I have more detailed documentation about the project on my portfolio site along with a few photographs taken during the performance, and a 15:37 audio study of the piece in stereo, simulating the five channels necessary to perform the work. Check it out at the link below.
