André Avelãs: Junkyard Sound Sculpture
culture
Dan Gould

Amsterdam based  artist André Avelãs creates interesting sound sculptures, hacked together from bits and pieces of  hardware and electronics. He says he’s interested in sound “not as a carrier of content but as a malleable material which shifts and changes in relation to the methods and machines through which it is reproduced.” Today and Tomorrow points us to a towering piece (untitled) made up of a frankenstein-like mix of speakers, turntables and audio equipment. Avelãs uses the set-up to manipulate the sounds of “silent” dusty, cracked vinyl records into a symphony of noise.
