This is an amplified steel wire, where the performers’ weight modulate the pitch of the string, which is played in various ways. Originally conceived as an installation (“Singing Swing”), a swing made of steel wire was played by visitors and amplified via headphones. It was part of a soundwalk made for the IMAGONIRMIA residency in Chiaravalle/Milano (Italy), June 2017.
The installation was then built in four copies at the Darmstadt Ferienkurse 2016 and a piece was written with the precious collaboration of four percussionists: Stanis Pili, Vincent Caers, Nagisa Shibata and Oded Gheizals. The piece was then performed and recorded in Malmö by Ars Nova Ensemble.Website
