Resonance Reappearing

Published on Feb 7, 2019 Gordon Monahan

“Resonance Reappearing is a motion-activated sound sculpture. Using Max/MSP software, a continuously changing score is created that draws from a library of prerecorded sounds. These sounds are transmitted through a network of motors and wires creating a vibrating, kinetic audio system that gives physical form to sound.

Four long piano wires are suspended

Sonometer is an automatic sound object (monochord) which changes string pitch (tension) by using an ultra-slow motor. It takes 40 minutes to reach the highest note and 36 minutes to drop it down. Because of extremely low speed, it’s almost impossible to

Interactive sound object/instrument.

“It sometimes happens that first the piece is born, and only after this you suddenly realize what it is about and how it should be used. Last summer (2018) I very quickly produced an interactive algorithmic object for a small exhibition. This object was producing endless aleatoric compositions using rotating

“I first met Dennis whilst I was in the WORM studio on an artist residency in 2017. The WORM studio is like a geological trip through electronic music’s history but I was about to travel even further back. Strange ghostly tones emanated from the old vocal booth next door, it was this space that Dennis had filled with mid 20th century audio test

Synthfest 2018 – Noise Orchestra- From Russian Futurism To Light Triggered Sounds

Published on Oct 8, 2018 sonicstate

“Noise Orchestra started as an art project inspired by 1920s Russian futurist artists who were working with mechanical sound and has evolved into an organisation that creates installations, education and workshops – now branching out into DIY kits for light triggered instruments and noise sources.”

The Kola Superdeep Borehole (СГ-3) is a scientific drilling project of the Soviet Union on the Kola Peninsula, inside the Arctic Circle. The project attempted to drill as deep as possible into the Earth’s crust. The drilling began on 24 May 1970. СГ-3 reached 12,262 meters [7.62 miles/40229.66 feet] in 1989

Another fascinating creation by ::vtol::. The sound that you hear is software. The hardware controls the sound.

“I have always perceived the concept of modulation in music as a complex cyclical visual system: the ricochets of the crest of a wave constricted in its own amplitude, rotations within rotations (in particular, if the shape of the wave is
