starting point of this prototype is the sound of falling drops on hot
pieces of metal. This refers to the primal instinct (it's hot!) and
speaks directly to the imagination. In addition, my interest lies
especially in the corners of the sound spectrum (sissing sounds). In
terms of content, It´s about the dualism technology versus nature. A
sound research that tries to appeal to the senses in a direct way.
Without using effects, I am playing with the threat evoked by the
sensation of hearing extremely hot surfaces. Furthermore the sense of
time comes into play; when will the next drop fall as threatening
tension, as opposite to decoration sounds. The sounds are all live
produced with the instrument combined with a peformance. The next
version will be an automated installation.
The premiere took place during November Music 2015 in Den Bosch (The
