A performance of a string quartet without musicians – the instruments play by themselves, responding to synthesized vibrations transmitted to the instruments through exciter speakers.
Periodic oscillations, impulses and am-modulated sounds form the musical basis of the concert, which evolves from drone-like soundscapes to fragments of Bach’s Well Tempered Piano; underlined and enhanced by akirasrebith’s projection mapping.
This project premiered at Transart 2015.
