IDEA BEHIND NOISE_LAB (SOUND-SCULPTURE, MADE AND PLAYED BY MARGRIET)

USING A LOUDSPEAKER AS INSTRUMENT,
BY PLAYING WITH RESONANCE:


MY STARTINGPOINT WAS PUTTING A QUESTIONMARK
AT THE OBJECTIVITY OF LOUDSPEAKERS.
IN OTHER WORDS: WHAT IF YOU MAKE A
LOUD-SPEAKER SUBJECTIVE WITH OWN SOUND,
WHICH HAS NOT EVERYTHING TO DO ANY MORE
WITH THE ORIGINAL SIGNAL IT RECEIVES
.

LIKE AN ANALOGUE FILTER.



SO I USED AN IRON HEATER, A TRUCK-SPRING AND MADE AN IRON FRAME WHERE THE PIECES ARE HANGING IN, FOR A MAXIMUM RESONANCE.
A SUBWOOFER MAKES THE INSTALLATION VIBRATING, WHICH I STIMULATE WITH FEEDBACK, AND IS PICKED-UP
BY MICROPHONES. I USE ALSO DIGITAL SOUNDS, CONTROLLED BY SELF-BUILT (MIDI) FADERS.



AT PARTICULAR FREQUENCIES THE IRON STARTS TO QUAKE AND PRODUCE SOUNDS (NOISE) LIKE A LIVING CREATURE, WHICH I AMPLIFY WITH MICS, (ALSO USING SOME EFFECTS). CONTROLLED BY HAND AND BY COMPUTER,
WITH THE LITERALLY LABORATORIUM-LIKE SET-UP, (INCLUDING A WHITE  SUIT AND STERILE WHITE GLOVES), I EXPRESS A SOUND-RESEARCH OR A LOUD-SPEAKER OPERATION.
