Audio Center #2

The mess of gadgets pictured above is a functional prototype of what will eventually become a modern visual interpretation of Luigi Russolo's mighty Intonarumori.

This version of the Intonarumori will resemble Russolo's originals only in their visual appearance. Instead of mechanically reproducing fixed sounds, they will play audio streamed from an iPad, iPhone, or any other source.

I will update this blog periodically as the design for Audio Center #2 takes shape. In the mean time you may enjoy Karheinz Stockhausen's wonderfully avant garde "Kontakte" by clicking below...

Table #1 - Taraire Variation

This variation of my Table #1 design is currently under construction for an installation in Auckland, New Zealand.

A glass top was chosen to emphasize the angular, triangulated construction of the legs. These will be polished and colored to match the exposed rafters in the apartment's ceiling space.

The table will be located in a fairly tight space, so using a glass top also helps to prevent the table from overfilling its space.
