Overview

500 recycled loudspeakers that are soldered together as an “active” public sound sculpture. The electromagnetic signals from recycled radios produce a low-level “white noise” into which local spectators can add their own tunes and pre-recorded messages. The sculpture is also conceived as a full-blown interactive sound sculpture where participants can play guitar and add their voices via bluetooth technology.
Sound is regulable via mixing board.
Size: 6 meters X 6 meters X 6 meters
