Recombinant Soundcube


Ringing through connected disconnected spaces to form a new continuity..

The Recombinant Acoustic Hypercube is an augmented sound sculpture that creates a live, hyper directional, reflective acoustic space.

It consists of n number of 'nodes'. Each node is a real space, for example a room or a hall, with real acoustic features. Each node is connected to the combined space via a microphone, a loudspeaker and an audio network device (basically a very sophisticated phone/modem with high sound resolution and little latency). A computer patch is employed as 'switchboard' to route the signals - either in a daisy chain for example A to B to C to D to E to F to A to complete a loop, or random directions.
