Hollow Bodies – a half didactic half playful exploration of the world of bells
This 11 minutes piece could be the beginning of a journey telling bells stories. As a collage lover, I felt very inspired to gather found sounds and footage, drawings, photos and stories about their existence, and to assemble them with my own sounds and visuals. I am interested to pursue this research, and would love to work on a longer version of this project, that would involve some compositions, drawings and found objects.
Hollow Bodies was thought of as an <in person> sound installation, where it would be presented as an audio piece with visual instructions and drawings in little pamphlets. It could then be listened to with eyes opened or closed, following the viewer’s rhythm. It would be presented in a space where viewers (listeners!) could sit or lie down with cushions. There could be resonant objects around to play with.
For the needs of the present situation, I am presenting an audio visual version of the project.
3D bell printed for the project, to start playing with the idea of creating objects to accompany sound installations. This model was found on the internet, but I am looking forward to design objects that will be more based on imagination.
Still in the theme of bells, I’m adding 2 bell pieces below. One made entirely with synthesis and one with a Tibetan bowl. The synthesis one is made with a just intonation FM instrument that my collaborator and I created last summer. The acoustic one I made for the class.
