Tops

TOPS (working title) is a new project of mine, conceived of as an electro-mechanical sculptural sound composition and performance tool comprised of 40 modified tin harmonic tops, each controlled via a set of linked Arduino microcontrollers.

This project was recently funded by the BC Arts Council and is currently in production. I expect to have a prototype completed in the next few months.

If you are interested in showing TOPS in your gallery or booking a performance, please contact me via the email in the ABOUT section

When Once There Was (part 1)

Watch the video: http://www.emmahendrix.com/sound-design/#/manufacturing-entertainment/

There is a different audio only version on Soundcloud

This is a nine minute single shot determined by the currents of the Peace River under threat by BC Hydro and the SiteC dam project. Sound sources were recorded on location and in the depths of a hydro dam.

If the dam is completed this entire area, Indigenous burial and ceremonial land, and fertile farmland will be under water.

What you see here is not the final outcome of the artwork. We are releasing this version now to help create public awareness about the SiteC dam which has been approved by the new NDP government in British Columbia.

When Once There Was (production)

We (Julie Gendron and I) will be conducting the first part of research and field recording for Julie's project "When Once There Was". We will be travelling to the Peace River Valley to the Site "C" Dam location to record audio and visual raw material to be used in a live A/V performance. The performance will be developed from the raw material we collect while travelling in the Valley.

Both Sides Now

Both Sides Now is an interactive video installation by Julie Gendron that is currently in development. I am creating complex layers of sound that will be triggered by audience members' presence, specific to one of two videos. The layers need to be interesting in their own right, but must also be able to work compositionally with every sound element in either video, triggered at random times.

The piece is about each individual’s struggle with inevitable change–inertia–accompanied with the ongoing internal discomfort displayed through hopeless and awkward control mechanisms.
