STAALPLAAT SOUNDSYSTEM - COMPOSED NATURE / YOKOMONO PRO (LP)


"Procuced by Staalplaat Soundsystem in order to document their recent sonic activities and researches, this LP record is focused on 2 recent projects. "Composed Nature" by Staalplaat Soundsystem and LOLA landscape architects, is an installation developed for the Centrum voor Beeldende Kunst Dordrecht, consisting of a matrix of 64 trees. Controllable mechanical vibrators are mounted on individual trees and are operated through custom made software. "Yokomono pro" was originally developed for the Indian Khoj (International Artists Association in New Delhi). This piece questions horn noise as a social sound and communication. The incredible volume and size of Indian traffic and the sounds it produces, was the inspiration for this project. 30 auto rickshaws were hired and prepared technically in order to remotely take over control of their horns. This enabled to synchronously play rhythmic patterns as the autos drive along a pre-determined route." (label info) Limited edition of 250 copies.
