Pendulum Coils(2020)

Kinetic Interactive Sound Work

Electronics, Metal Junk, Stone

Pendulum Coils is an interactive sound installation that has been featured at several exhibition locations, one of them being Galleri Rostrum in Malmö (SE).

The installation consists of a playable kinetic sculpture, which through pendulum movement drives an electronic soundscape. An organic soundscape guided by gravity emerges, directed by the exhibition’s visitors. The sounds generated by the parallel but mutually independent pulses work together to create a soundscape that is both evocatively static and at the same time never the same.

“I am interested in letting objects, movements and patterns that exist in a non-musical context be shaped aurally. With this, I want to highlight and question how we value and categorize our world. I intend to create a borderland where conventional definitions don’t work and thus stimulate a situation where you have to get involved in order to understand.”
