Summary of works

Composite of "Vibration Project" and additional vibrations

From phase 1-2 - early testing with recording and abstracting riddim, first steps with using the table to generate vibration in objects.

Gutterglass

From phase 3. Gutterglass represents my first complete range of compositional research around the interactions between hearing and listening, as well as the exploration of making of sound through vibrating materials.

Sines 121Hz

From phase 4 - working with fundamental resonant frequencies of materials, trying to push to the more brittle and bright properties of the glass, experiments with less predictable sound/sensation interactions.

Experiments with broadening the range of materials used

See phase 5 for these tests.

Undulation

From phase 6 - Dampening surfaces with my hands to allow control over how much the sounds went into chaotic rattles. I was trying to offer a containment to the sound, in that the potential for vibration was expressed, but not fully realised as noisy rattles.

Dropping

Completed after phase 6 for final presentation. This work played with the interaction of cycles of energy generated through the vibration structure, mainly transmitted to the head, and a four channel audio arrangement. It applied the developments from phase 6.
