L’EXCITATION SONORE DE ZOÉ T. – PERFORMANCE
Presented at OBORO in Montreal Five sound generators in which the soul source of sound is the light. Each ‘Optical Sound Wheel’ consists of a base equipped with a 26” acrylic disc with cutouts of repeating geometric patterns. When the wheel rotates, the light beam passes through the cutout patterns, producing a distinct pulse of light. The photodiode, placed above, catches the light and transforms it into audible frequencies.
This project was realized at OBORO as part of the 2014 artist in residence program.
