Animated Brass, is a carillon constructed of brass pipes in various thicknesses and length. The brass pipes are activated by metal rings driven by electric motors, which via an algorithmic composition lift up the rings and then let go.
When the metal ring hits the brass tube it creates different rhythmic sounds. The rhythmic work thus face the sound of the carillon.
My works “Animated Glass” and “Animated Brass” were both created as a part of the SPRING’15 exhibition at Kunsthal Aarhus 2015 and presented among works by fellow artist Katrine Hvid and Laura Stamer.
SPRING is a special exhibition-in-exhibition featuring selected artist that have previously exhibited at KP: “Sprung from a desire to expose the best of artistic potentials and talents that are accepted by the jury each year, The Artists’ Easter Exhibition established the SPRING exhibition as a platform for a small selection of artists, who have previously exhibited at KP.”
A boxset multiple, containing an exhibition-catalog, a 7″ vinyl record, a fabric sample and a photograph was released in 2015 as a part of the exhibition.
The digital copy as well as the boxset can be ordered from Bandcamp.com
