re-cycles

sound performance with self made instruments (2017)

 

the performance of re-cycles is a product of studying and working with outdated technologies and electronic waste. during a two-month residency at the academy of fine arts in zagreb (february and march 2017) the author dedicated to making simple acoustic instruments and electromechanical system for playing on these instruments. by recycling old walkmans, cd players and toys, he collected electromotors that are basis for this performance. electromotors serve as resonators for acoustic instruments. at the same time, the recording of their electromagnetic radiation makes them tone generators. the use of this kind of diy instruments is an attempt of reanimating the old media that results in a performance in free noise style.
