Going Away, improvisation for bicycle solo

Following the Bicycles and the Arts event, I had a bicycle all ready to make this improvisation!

Installation sur le Slinky, seconde version

version 2010

After the first version if the installation, in 2004, a research on the slinky and performances of Sans Escalier, piece for slinky solo, the Slinky saga continue.

Frances Bowman asked to be part of Part Ark, an week-end of exhibition in a park, as a sound artist. I though that I could wake up my slinkies. Installation sur le slinky is an interactive installation using slinkies as source of sound. I did it years ago in Montréal, (Installation sur le slinky). But this one, in London, is partly inspired by Robin Whittle slinky research.

Here is a little video of this year slinky installation:

Sticky Pathways was as well an installation that was including a 8 channels music track, a lot of solo tape and a frame with some headphones. Here three extracts of the 45 minutes long music track.
