ECHO is a research project about sound in a tactile manner. Tessa Spierings creates a unique experience of play and sound.
“By approaching sound and acoustics in a playful way, the topic is addressed in another dimension,” Spierings explains of her project.
Composed of speakers and tubes made from different materials and in different sizes, Spierings’ ‘Echo’ allows the user to create a multitude of aural experiences by combining the elements differently. “Placing a tube on a speaker gives the sound a certain character”, she continues.
“By stacking and moving the tubes from one speaker to another, several sound layers can be created.” This gives the user the potential to interact physically with material and melody; almost as if ‘Echo’ is an instrument in and of itself.
By approaching sound and acoustics in a playful way, the topic is addressed in another dimension. Tubes from different materials and dimensions form a landscape together. ECHO invites you to interact with material and melody.
