Young-min Choi, Sylvan Zheng : Chordal Distance
Chordal Distance [ ★ ★ ★ ★ ]
A sound installation that explores the relationship between two people by connecting the physical act of pulling to music.
None As the two participants negotiate their mutual physical equilibrium music responds to the surges in tension, releases, and twists highlighting the nature of their relationship. While the installation affords this personal experience to the participants it also serves as a performance for a larger audience to engage with.

Two wooden handles hang suspended at chest height, connected to each other with a simple band.

We invite participants to explore the subtle musical shifts in tone and harmonic texture throughout the varying positions and tensions afforded by the installation.
