Houses of Sound

Pierre Berthet

2005


A network of steel wires and can resonators connects two sheds in Cortensteel on the banks of the Dommel. A resonance emerges in the sheds thanks to sinus waves originating from loudspeakers without membrane that set the wires in vibration. Random ambient sounds are recorded by microphones and mixed into the soundscape. Visitors are completely absorbed in the soundmix in and around the sheds.

Programming and realisation in cooperation with Patrick Delges.
