A simple interactive piece.| Two threaded rods with found resonators attached above and below are separated by a thin sound absorbant wire to create a natural stereo field. As patrons lift washers weighted with paper wings up the steel rods (Frances Senn, patron) and release them, the "moths flutter" downward creating rhythms that are amplified by the scrap resonators. Clicking rhythms are controlled by the turning of the rods and the off-balancing of the washers. || Click photos to enlarge. | MAIN MENU
