Infinité, Gallery Weisser Elefant, Berlin 2020
2 sound channels, transducers and object trouvé.
Orbiting Mantra is a slowly evolving sonic composition, which invites the visitor to orbit around hanging resonating plates, or to stand between them taking a sonic bath. Sound exciters transmit vibration onto the metallic surfaces, enhancing the metallic character of the sound. The composition is made of various parts that inter fade slowly. On the turkish tea trays of special resonant qualities, infinite spirals are drawn, appearing and disappearing with the changing light angle while one moves around. Like the visuals, the sound spins endlessly, and the visitor mirrors with his circular movement the repetition of a spatial infinity. The atmospheric composition expands into the room. The exhibition “Infinité” was held in honor to the great female Pioneer of Electronic Music Eliane Radigue, for her 88th birthday in January 2020.
