Bartholomäus Traubeck - Years


A record player that plays slices of wood. Year ring data is translated into music, 2011.
Modified turntable, computer, vvvv, camera, acrylic glass, veneer, approx. 90x50x50 cm. " - Traubeck

There is a wierdly, morbid atmosphere that I feel has been created throughout this piece. As the wood turns, and the sound plays, slightly creeps me out as it could possibly be the voice of a tree. Not to be stray away from the context too much, but there is a clear indication of an effective use of sound, form and space. A nice project indeed.
