Soundscape and laser-cut dome exhibit + iPad interactive
WoodWorked and SoundShell is a soundscape project installed at both venues. WoodWorked is an hour-long series of original compositions created from sounds derived from wood, inspired by consideration of four themes – Forest, Workshop, Time and Rummage. It plays continuously during opening hours in both gallery spaces, providing an atmospheric acoustic signature for the exhibition experience. SoundShell is a 30cm diameter laser-cut plywood geodesic dome that I designed and prototyped to serve as a point of material focus and containment for the soundscape. The hi-fidelity soundscape emanates from within the small dome.
A selection of tracks from WoodWorked can be heard at my Soundcloud site.
Following is a video showing assembly of the laser-cut plywood dome.
