CRT TELEVISION

OF MUTE THINGS

of mute things is an audiovisual installation exploring the inadvertent sound world of 'muted' electronics, and seeks to develop a greater sensitivity between ourselves and our immediate, and often unnoticed, sonic environment.

The installation is for twelve or more CRT televisions connected to individual free-view boxes set to different channels. With all televisions set to mute, a number of delicate quite inaudible individual drones are created each time the picture changes. Contact microphones are fixed to each television screen and fed to its own free standing speaker.  The installation is completely indeterminate as the sound depends on the specifics of each channel.

RADIO

RADIOROBOT

RADIOROBOT is a sound sculpture in the shape of a robot, which is made entirely out of analogue radios. The installation draws together interests in radio frequency interaction, circuit bending and sculpture using found objects. The sound sculpture takes on a very site specific nature as the radios are finely tuned to not only interact with each other but are also responsive to other electro-magnetic objects, the space in which the sculpture is placed and its geography.
