“For the Birds” is a homage to John Cages’ aleatoric work. The setup is devoted to the study of randomness, it’s generative force and the correlation between noise and sound: recurring concepts and motifs in the work of Cage.
This sound installation is based on the interplay between objects and processes. Two opposing hairdryers set a ball in motion inside a glass cube. Light sensors underneath the glass, influenced by the moving ball, trigger twelve chromatic tones on a circuit-bent keyboard. The result is an infinite, random composition.
