Untitled Sound Objects

Pe Lang and Zimoun start their joint project Untitled Sound Objects, based on work with materials brought to sound through vibration. They focus on creating acoustic architecture with an organic feel, investigating properties of sound, materials, resonance properties and generative systems.

Vibrating motors cause glass plates, on which various materials are placed, to oscillate. The vibrations move the materials and the frictions caused by this generate sounds, which are amplified via contact microphones and edited through DSP (Digital Signal Processing). Through a multiple channel speaker system amplified sounds are projected and reassembled into new sound architectures. The software used to control the vibrating motors and the sound editing is programmed with MAX MSP.
