The piece is an installation that a viewer can sit in. It consists of nine segments forming a semi-circular space which contain seven sound sources.The sound is generated by suspended aluminum bars, that are sent into vibration by a fluctuating magnetic field.
The field is generated by oscillators feeding audio amplifiers, the amp output feeds and electromagnet located adjacent to the bar.The bar"s vibration is amplified by resonator tubes. An Arduino randomly controls the cluster and duration of notes. The piece was commission by the Svane foundation as part of the Ark project, the theme is sanctuary. Construction took five months.
