VIDEO PEACOCK  An Audio Peacock costume (constructed from white polycarbonat-plexiglass) is used as a mobile projection screen. This is a solo audio-visual concert where the electro-acoustic quality of an Audio Peacock is visually enhanced via a video beamer: moving images (both live and recorded) can be projected directly onto the performer's costume. A story is told "live" by a figurant who simultaneously samples his own amplified voice, manipulating the sound (loop and pitch): the performer dubs his own hallucogenic dream.

AUDIO PEACOCKS is the most recent performance from Benoit Maubrey.  These wearable electronic instruments are constructed from  polycarbonat plexigalss material shaped into a peacockıs  fan-like plumage. The plexiglass surface is  equipped with 16 loudspeakers (150 watts power), amplifiers, and rechargeable 12 volt batteries. The "audio-plumage" is highly directional and functions  like an electroacoustic radar dish -- esthetically it has much in common with the way a peacock parades itself in front of the pea-hen (the audience). An Audio Peacock can either amplify its own electronic instrument and voice  or receive sounds from outside sources via transmitter/receiver  and disseminate them in a space by orienting his high-tech "plumage". Four Audio Peacock units can be acoustically choreographed  as  a mobile quadrophonic loudspeaker system. VIDEO PEACOCK.

AUDIO - IGLOO --- Sound Art Installation

audio iglu


Recycled Sounds  ­ The AUDIO-IGLOO

An acoustic space: a building made from electroacoustic boxes. A room of my own ­ a sound space created from disguarded modern junk ­ the battered and disguarded artefacts of modern age. Relics temporarily salvaged from a metal schredderıs grinding teeth. The boxes are not unlike the frozen building blocks of an igloo ­ when put together they turn into a dome-like space. A room within a room: the Parochial Church as a refuge for homeless speakers. Thanks to the efficiency of the German recycling system (and sponsorship of BRAL Reststoffbearbeitung GmbH and Rethman AG) 400 loudspeaker boxes have been recycled into a new home: a habitat for listeners of avant-garde music. Along with the speakers I have also collected radio tuners, record players, and guitar amplifiers ­ all of these have been re-soldered into a new structure of not just recycled electronics, but also recycled sounds (unseen sounds from the air: electro-magnetic waves). A chorus of electroacoustic souls whispering their last prayer. We are allowed to enter this room, our body-resistance brings warmth into this media confessional, the sounds change around us ­ or is it our imagination? he installation ends on the 12th of December and all 400 speakers will be returned to BRAL Reststoffbearbeitung GmbH ­ the final cycle of their
fate.
