About

All of the works exhibited in this exhibition are interactive and can be played by the public. Several of the pieces involve air blowing over the tops of bottles which produce amazing tones and pulses. There is to be a competition with cash prizes to compose a short piece of music on the sculptures.

Two of the bottle playing sculptures have an interior space that can be entered so that the viewer/player is enveloped in sound. When two similar notes are played, a third note is produced by their interaction. The bottle ìorgansî all use this phenomenen to produce strange and beautiful sounds.

There is also an electric mechanical drum machine that can be programmed using pegs and an ìorganî that plays a variety of electric motors.

Some of the materials used in the sculptures are discarded waste, collected and given a new life.

There will be a performance using some of the sculptures with voice on the evening of the 24th June and the pieces for the composition competition will be played and judged on the afternoon/ evening of the 9th of July.
