Alvin Lucier: Empty Vessels

 

 

 

 

Alvin Lucier`s “Empty Vessels” 17 Januar – 23 February at Lydgalleriet

    

 

Åtte glassbeholdere, vaser og andre kar i ulike former og størrelser står i rekke plassert på hver sin pidestall. Lyden som fanges av mikrofoner plassert inni beholderne sendes til høyttalere og lager akustisk feedback, som igjen skaper resonans inne i beholderne. Beholdernes form, i tillegg til publikums tilstedeværelse i rommet, skaper forandringer i lydlandskapet. Realisert av Nicolas Collins. Kuratert av Carsten Seiffarth. Produsert i samarbeid med Atelier Nord.

 

Åpning Fredag 17. Januar kl 20:00

Utstilling er åpen Torsdag - Søndag 12:00 - 17:00

Inngang :20 kr 

 

Empty Vessels (1997) belongs to a series of works in which Alvin Lucier studies the resonance characteristics of the smallest interior spaces. He has placed eight glass water containers and vases on pedestals along one of the space’s walls. Microphones are placed in the openings of the empty vessels, and each is rooted through limiters to speakers. The eight loudspeakers are positioned exactly opposite, along the facing wall. The amplifier in each microphone-loudspeaker system is selected in such a way that each strand of feedback is marked by the resonant characteristics of the respective vessel. This creates a controlled feedback field of resonant tones and their interferences in the gallery space. When entering the field, the visitor disrupts the delicate balance of the system, creating new feedbacks with unexpected frequencies. Even a small head movement is enough to hear a multifaceted, fluctuating spectrum of pitches. Realization: Nicolas Collins and curator: Carsten Seiffarth. Produced in collaboration with Atelier Nord.
