About Edit

This is an idea for an audio based installation.

Description Edit

A circle of pedestals in a darkened space. On each pedestal is an audio device, similar to a Buddha Machine. Each playing a single sample, looping it continuously. The volume and pitch of each player can be interacted with.

Each sample:

  • Street / Market noises
  • People talking / Background music / radio playing
  • Children talking
  • Light aircraft in the distance
  • Data bursts (GPS position data?)
People are afraid of the sound of drones. They fear attack and now this sound, the light aircraft buzz in the distance is a sound to instil fear. Will this sound invade the minds of people in western cities? Police and security forces are already starting to use drones and we are already exposed to the sound of police helicopters.
