1. Momma Bob-Imidi
- Music from Saharan Cellphones Vol2 2010
How does the object (in this case the cell phone) provide limitations, opportunities and colourations to work? Compare this work to the ‘world music’ that comes out of Peter Gabriel’s Real World studio in Bath, UK.
- Le Son de Choses: Semaphore (2004) (‘The Sound of Things’)
- La Course ('The Race’) The Tape-Measure piece
An example of kinetic sculpture
- Mecanoid (2001)
- Meccano machines designed to trigger sound.
The object in these cases are like expansions/reveals of the tools of sampling and sequencing.
4. Harry Bertoia - Sonambient
The beauty of which I think is the exertion and dissipation of energy on the structural forms. The standout aesthetic element is the visual, not so much the sonic element. If the sounds were cut into loops they would lose their point.
5. Sarah Hopkins (AU) - Double Whirly
6. Alison Knowles - California Sandals, Rocky Mountain Train (Frijoles Canyon CD, 1991)
Member of Fluxus and studied under John Cage
Her work on beans, resulting from the political symbolism of the bean
7. Peter Cusack - Nightingale Hum (Your Favourite London Sounds, 2001)
8. Pascale Wiedemann - Frauenpower (Nonchalance CD)
Objects (vacuum cleaner, baby) as signifiers. In this case, the sound objects denote physical things.
9. Peril - Exchange Rate ()
