Waterchimes

Interactive Sound Sculpture

 

A series of Glockenspiel keys (arranged in the harmonic series) are suspended over a fish tank, semi-submerged in water. The tank has hydrophones in which pick up any sound emanating through the water. This sound is passed through a series of electronics which regurgitate the sound randomly chopped up and slowed down (re-pitched in lower 5ths and octaves) to create a rich harmonic texture, controlled by the user.
