Another awesome use of sound. Seeing things like this makes us remember just how many different ways to approach the world of audio there are. While it’s often important to accompany a visual with sound, as in the movies, creating a visual around a sound can make a different sort of impact.
from the vimeo page:
“Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of simple and functional materials, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. Carrying an emotional depth, the acoustic hum of natural phenomena in Zimoun’s minimalist constructions effortlessly reverberates.”
It’s interesting how each installation tends to be first viewed up close, focused on tiny details or a single rotator engine. It really allows the viewer to focus on the sound and then to zoom out and view each piece as a whole.
