Resonant Objects, Andre GonÃ§alves (PT)
AndrÃ© GonÃ§alves ‘Resonant Objects’ is an ongoing series of works focused on creating micro-environments, computer controlled hermetic spaces. Bringing together sound and space through sympathetic vibrations, sound is used as a medium to excite space in order to render audible its natural resonances â€“ sound multiplying in and by space.
For OFFLOAD AndrÃ© is modifying his ‘Resonant Objects’ to play a two hours long piece according to a site-specific musical score, this score is triggered by a computer and played only when motion inputs are sensed by motion sensors located in the space.
