RAINFOREST IV – David Tudor
Fourth version (1973): A collaborative environmental work, spatially mixing the live sounds of suspended sculptures and found objects, with their transformed reflections in an audio system.
“In the first version, I made objects which I could travel with. The object were so small, however, that they didn’t have any sounding presence in the space, so I then amplified the outputs with the use of contact microphones. Then for the second version, I wanted to have a different kind of input… because for the first I had used oscillators that made animal and bird-like sounds. In the second version I wanted to use a vocal input to the system, the natural resonance of the object and its subsequent amplification. Its a kind of mechanical filter.” David Tudor
The workshop is open to musicians and artists interested to learn about working with transducers, resonant frequencies and feedback matrices that where designed to create an orchestra of instruments from found objects sculptures and electronics.
For the opening of Electropixel we invite participants to the workshop to play Rainforest IV with Dime Ensemble
