Aluminum, motors, public- address speakers, electronics


A sound installation involving a grid of nine ceiling-mounted speakers continuously rotating at the ends of synchronized booms. My intent here was to explore a hybrid system using both real, and virtually-moving, sound. Only one speaker is active at a given time. Sound switches between speakers only when they are in close proximity, and a randomizing circuit gives the go-ahead. The result is the sound of a fly, or an airplane, buzzing overhead in complex arabesques.
