PORTE SONORE (SPEAKERS GATE)

Project for Les Abattoirs (near Lyon) for the Festival Electrochoc

Materials: 1000 recycled loudspeakers (soldered together as an 8-channel system), one 24-channel mixing board, 10 amplifiers, 10 recycled receivers , 10 recycled cassette players/ “ghetto blasters” , 10 DVD/CD players.
Sound: low-volume multi-acoustic white noise (white noise = electromagnetic sound waves change according to weather, time, radio stations and frequencies) .

Also the public can call up the sculpture via a local telephone number and talk through it “live” for 3 minutes with their telephones or use their smart phones to play and create tunes.
The sculpture would also be available for local concerts and public art events.
