Ricky van Broekhoven – SONOSCOPE

//  4-7th Oct. @ Mansarda Bastion Theresia

Ricky van Broekhoven –
SONOSCOPE, interactive media installation

Music is made from hidden soundwaves.
Sonoscope transforms these into an immersive spectacle.

It uses sound energy to generate patterns in a basin of water. With light and carefully positioned lenses it makes a captivating projection. The transparently designed machine works purely mechanical and shows the miraculous physics of sound. It’s made from CNC- cut polished aluminium and custom made laboratory glass. It makes listening to music become a spatially engaging performance.

Studio Ricky van Broekhoven is a laboratory that explores the realm of design and architecture through sound. Natural forces and processes are adapted to shape unique objects and immersive environments.

Klaas Hübner – EXTENDED PICK UP #2

//  4-7th Oct. @ Mansarda Bastion Theresia

Klaas Hübner –
EXTENDED PICK UP #2 / sound installation, 2016

In this installation Klaas Hübner reveals the sounds of daily electronic devices from the area of Timișoara with a sensor that hovers over the displayed materials in a circular movement creating an ever-changing sequence of hisses, hums and noises of electromagnetic fields.

German sound sculptor, improviser and instrument­maker Klaas Hübner has developed a body of work which honours sound as a live­ medium with which to craft, shape and play in real­time. His playful punk and Flux inspired practice ranges from installation based works, to live improv, to theatre and sound design.

Sillyconductor – 100 Catronomes

//  4-7th Oct. @ Mansarda Bastion Theresia

100 CATRONOMES, installation (dimension variable) 2010

100 Catronomes is a modern recreation of Gyorgy Ligeti’s “Poème Symphonique”. Whereas Ligeti employed 100 wooden metronomes set at different speeds, this version takes advantage of the inheretly imperfect and ureliable nature of the cheap maneki neko’s internal mechanisms to provide rhythmic and tonal variations over time. 100 Catronomes was performed in Bucharest six years ago at the National Centre for Contemporary Dance during the Sâmbăta Sonoră listening sessions.

Sound designer, field recordist and sonic speed addict based in Bucharest, Sillyconductor has fun exaggerating classical music related devices and techniques. He has written music for films, animations, architectural mapping events, fashion shows, dance performances and created sound installations/objects. Among other things, he designed a multi-piano surround installation that would explore the upper limits of note reproduction, helped develop a software that generates 60 soundtracks per second, played USB fans through guitar pedals, adapted urban folklore to micro-tuned instruments and conducted an earthquake.
