made up of large mobile sculptures that emit “hypnotic” sounds. Circles of light are traced in the
air as the arms whirl above. At the end of each metallic arm, loudspeakers emit tuned musical notes, creating a pulsating drone with a characteristic sound. This large sound installation is co-presented by both b-side (#bside festival) and Activate (#Insideout Dorset Festival).
Listeners may be familiar with the “swirling” sound produced by this installation, from Leslie speakers, originally used in the 40’s by Jazz and, later, rock musicians. There are many effect pedals available which recreate the original sound, with varying degrees of success.
