Take a look at this sound art installation by Tristan Perich consisting of 1,500 speakers each playing a single microtonal frequency, collectively spanning 4 octaves.
Tristan Perich’s Microtonal Wall consists of 1,500 small speakers arranged in a grid and mounted onto a 25 foot long panel. Each of these 1,500 speakers emits a single different tone across a four octave range. This sonic sculpture continues Perich’s investigations into the structure and foundation of electronic music. Here, each speaker’s single 1-bit tone becomes a voice in a sonic mass that shifts and transforms in relationship to the listener’s position in the room.
The work was on display earlier this year at the InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Centre in Toronto Canada. This video shows a walk-thru of the exhibit.
