in colaboration with Marc Dubois
This machine is a reinterpretation of "The Clapping Music" by Steve Reich. The both gears have the same rhythmic pattern, but the first one misses 3 teeth, creating a delay on the second one. Each gears contains 4 measures and after 12 rotations, the delay disappears, and the music restart.
Using fans from an old PC, we created this instrument that makes mechanical sounds. It is a tribute to the good old tower PC, that has become rare these days. We wanted to create a more positive experience from the sounds he made when he wanteds busy.
Created together with Martin Hertig
during a one-week workshop with Yuri Suzuki. In the video you can see our sculpture together with the other results from the workshop.
