ESPOO CULTURAL CENTRE, 3rd floor
The duration for this musical composition/ installation is 13 days which corresponds to the total duration of the Cartes Flux3 Festival, commencing at 6 pm on 6.5.08 and running until 3 pm on 18.5.08. A graphical score especially made for this installation allows the progression of the music to be followed.
“A Project: A Room: 13 Days” is both a sound installation and composition for 4 individual loud-speakers. The loudspeakers are constructed by Timlin of: coil springs, a washing machine, a large plastic tube and several metal sheets. Each loudspeaker is visually as well as acoustically unique. The basic idea was to create speakers that add their own peculiarities to the sounds they diffuse as well as react physically to the sound material they receive.
