Beautiful artwork: “Music of liberation” by Alex Grey.
Sound installation by Alex Allmont uses old LEGO to create a machine to generate electronic music - video embedded below:
Play house is an automata that mechanically computes and performs hooky and hypnotic acid house. Like a generative musical loom, a single drive turns a sequence of LEGO gears, levers and latches that mutate riffs and rhythm patterns. These are played out on analogue drums and synthesisers from the halcyon days of 1980’s dance music while the machine gradually shifts the timbre and space of the sound. In the piece the process of creation is laid bare so one can indulge in picking apart the interactions driving the score, seeing sound as it changes in sculpture, exploring our expectations in music, or simply rocking out to some fruity acid.

Benoit Jammes is a French graphic designer and photographer living and working in Paris. With his [o-o], a series of cassette relooking, he gives life back to vintage tapes by making references to pop culture: “It so happened that I found a bunch of old cassettes at home. Seeing them brought me back to the 80s, when I was a kid. In any case, I could not play them any more. Resurrecting them sounded a good idea for me. It was sound, it became visual… and I am pretty sure they are happier now than in a shoebox :-) I think people from my generation would relate to this series of work and would be happy to see these old cassette tapes managed to start a new life!”

Caten | 2012
Kinetic sound installation
Designed for the Saint Sauveur chapel in Caen, Caten is a site specific, kinetic sound installation comprised of 300 wires suspended in the chapel. Gravity pulls the wires into a parabolic shape that mimics the arched interior spaces of the church as a rotating arm attached to the wires causes them to rise and fall. The motor emits a series of notes inspired by hymn to St John the Baptist, as the new notes play, the lower frequency notes continue to resonate throughout the space— referencing the incantations and chants that once filled the space.
