[ISEA2000] Artists Statement: Jacopo Baboni Schilingi – INSTRUMENT A GONDS

Artists Statement

Interactive musical sculpture based on a sculpture by Arman. ENSBA, ECOLE NATIONALE SUPERIEURE DES BEAUX-ARTS

An installation including a bronze statue, carried out by Arman, a musical composition of Jacopo Baboni Schilingi and a text read and recorded, written by Tita Reut. A system of hinges gives to the public the opportunity to modify the statue’s shape. These movements disturb, thanks to a system of sensors, the music diffused as well as the recorded text. The disturbance of the sounds is thus proportional to the amplitude of the variation imposed on the sculpture, and the linearity of the text, just like the various parameters of the recorded voice, could be also called in question by the intervention of the public.
