Inside-The-Oscillator, audio-instalación de Edo Paulos
Es uno de mis artistas favoritos, y todavía no entiendo porqué. Sus esculturas sonoras y sus instalaciones tienen ese “no se que” que me engancha y respeto. Acaba de presentar este proyecto:
Inside-The-Oscillator is a soundinstallation consisting of eight sets of a microphone, a speaker and an aluminium plate. All eight sets are being hung together in one fysical space. With each set, the speaker returns an amplified and slightly modified audiosignal from the microphone (most microphones are contactmicrophones attached to aluminium plates). The microphone picks up, through the air and the aluminium plate, the sound of it’s corresponding speaker. Thus, a feedback oscillation can occur. This oscillation is mostly defined by the frequencycharacteristics of the aluminium plate and by the fysical space in which everything resides.
In this fysical space everything comes together. Here, the eight feedback oscillations of the eight microphone-speaker-plate sets mix and influence eachother. Here, also, the oscillations are influenced by other factors: Environmental sounds, presence of bodies in the fysical space and airmovements which alter the position of the aluminium plates, amongst others.
Inside-The-Oscillator was exhibited in Kristin’s Keller, Amsterdam, may 2004.
