Failed Experiments, this is their first appearance in the USA; is their performance/installation series comprised of small objects, motors, fans and magnets; these animated contraptions are the result of their precarious studio experiments; the work is never complete but is forever – a work in progress; sounding objects are arranged and assembled in the space as to make tiniest tonal occurrences to sporadical patterns of noise; the audience will experience papers, bottles, wood branches, hearing aids, brass, all mundane materials scattering around in order to magnify the architecture of the space
This collaboration was first presented at Algomech Festival (2017, UK).
