Tabling Jeroen Uyttendaele Apr 2021 -
Microphones and speakers are transducers that translate sound into other things and turn other things into sounds. In this residency I’m using a series of selfmade “speaker tables” and a collection of resonating objects such as metal, crystal, glass and ceramics to filter and alter sounds traversing through the objects. The sounds, mostly wind sounds made from field recordings, are picked up by microphones and fed back again to the objects creating a constantly evolving soundscape of feedback and resonance.
Besides the design of the tables I’m researching specific gestures and movements so I can create a performance where the usual knobs ore sliders of an electronic music performance are replaced by the direct, physical manipulation of the “speakers".
