Resonants follows on from work conducted with deaf artist Damien Robinson, in which we investigated the resonant qualities of different materials to use in our tactile sound installations (see Vibe Cube, Signpost). This line of interest in accessibility to sound, and the varying ways in which we all experience things, stemmed from Damien's heightened perception of vibrations and gave us new ideas through which to experience (our) sound works.
Concurrently, my investigations into the resonant qualities of inanimate objects has been the focus of my musical output for several years, with releases and performances.
Resonants is the first time that these two trains of thought have been brought together, to discover the resonant qualities of objects, and for them to be displayed as installations where the vibrations and sounds can be experienced.
As an extension of these ideas, I have also worked on a number of collaborative performances with Jonathan Kipps. We have been experimenting with combinations of static sculptures, transducers, contact mics and different environments in which these collaborations can be experienced. We believe that by giving a duration to static artwork and introducing sound as a physical element, viewers will be able to gain a greater understanding of the object than if they had encountered it in an art gallery. In turn, there will be a heightened sense of the full depth of the soundscape due to the focussed environment created by the presence of a still object.
