etude for everyday objects
a 20-30 minute sound performance; mainly making sound with everyday objects.
>>I use electronic devices like compact loopsamplers, contact speaker with mini amp, light box, volume controllers, etc to "amplify" the idea , but not so much audio level. Most of the sound could be easily reproduced by anyone with simple instruction, so I would like to make people play around the things I bring a kind of workshop. Using food-folio, plastic straw, and joghurt (free!) with simple devices.<<
