DESCRIPTION

Bottle Tones utilizes the simplest of sound vibrations and enhances them to uncover hidden timbres. A variety of pumps are arranged before a corresponding variety of bottles. Visitors pump air into the bottles openings to make tones: the same sound as if you were blowing into the bottle. Contact mics send the sound-wave through customized effects, transforming them for a range of Sonos players. Visitors are encouraged to play immersive music together on multiple pumps. It's an exploration of tonal production, manipulation, and the simple pleasure of listening.
