Interessante Klangkunst von PIERRE BERTHET! Seine "extended Loudspeakers"-Installation beruht auf im Galerieraum aufgehngten Benzinkanistern, die mit Drahtseilen verbunden werden, so dass die Vibration eines Lautsprechers ber die Drahtseile weitergegeben wird. Je nach Klangmodulation des Ursprungslautsprechers ergeben sich verblffende Vernderungen der Ober- und Zwischentne, eine klackernde Mechanik wie von einem Meer von lebendigen kleinen Maschinen, die schlingernde Metallwellen aussenden, die sich im Verlauf sehr dynamisch verndern... klingt wie nichts was man JEMALS gehrt hat..

"Extended Loudspeaker. Jerrycans connected by a network of steel wires, each wire length and can location is adapted to the space. a loudspeaker is slipped inside one of the cans; the sounds it broadcasts make the wires vibrate. When these sounds are modulated (pitch, timbre, volume, density), the cans produce various resonances, which can be injected back into the speaker (feedback). The cans are hanging, so that listeners can circulate and choose different listening perspectives. Berthet: a short biography.
