This piece, part of Primary Colours’ Installation Nation is a participatory listening piece where people can experience the ambient soundscape filtered by polycarbonate tubes into a pleasant drone.
The tubes are cut to lengths that resonate at frequencies tuned to the pentatonic scale–so that by placing different tubes to each ear, various harmonies may be enjoyed. Requiring no power or circuitry, Antinodal nonetheless provides a subtle shift to the sounds in the outdoor space around the participant to evoke a playful sense of mindfulness. Visually, the piece is mysterious (and a little intimidating), but engagement with it reveals its benign fun.
