installation testing phase I

Installation testing phase 1

Wire with the sound of its own tension or The box with universal connector

Aims: to extend the instrument to room-scale, investigating the relationships of internal and external resonance.


Sketches pre-fabrication:


Fabrication :






Transposing of Space:









1. Wire length requires low frequency (<=120Hz), future experimentations to see if wires do well at >1000Hz.

2. Contact microphone on bridge not effective, possible switch to Piezo discs (see Jason Kahn’s Wires @

3.  Gear ratios inaccurate : switch from 6:1 to 1:1/0.5:1

4.  Sound of gears overwhelming – change from stepper motors to small ones

5. Increase modularity [scale down system] to allow for emergent behaviour
