______________________________________________

cans are suspended from the ceiling.
used as speakers by attaching piezzo microphones, they create a unique sonic-room, that feels more like a sonic field. numerous cans are spread above and beneath the audience, various sonic patterns and movements can be created within this system by multichannel spatialisation and a precise choice of sounds.
the sound is characterised and shaped by a 'metalic flavour' created by the cans.
further, the cans are used to prepare the usual p.a. speaker's membrane in order to add a variety of modulated sounds.
cans speaking.
in 2010 I made the cans also cast light in relation to the volume of the sound they produce,
so it has developed into an sound-light installation by now creating organic sound- and lightfields.
for light it works best in dark rooms :
