Prepared Chamber by Anton Mobin
presented by Margaret Noble on SOUND IS ART
Chamber is a home made acoustic instrument composed with a large box in wood, upgraded with several springs and others metallic found objects selected for their capacity to create melody. The box is divided into three parts among which each is covered with a different surface, (a wood, a metal and a plastic one). Three different contact-microphones are placed in suspension under these surfaces: bass contact for the wood, medium contact for the metal and high contact for the plastic surface. Deliberate accidents produced in the Prepared Chamber create a micro universe which I dread in a intuitive way to resound as the pling plong music.
