André Avelãs: Junkyard Sound Sculpture

André Avelãs: Junkyard Sound Sculpture

  • 11 november 2008

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.
