Houses of Sound
Pierre Berthet


A network of steel wires and tin can resonators connects two sheds made from Cortensteel on the banks of the Dommel. A resonance emerges in the sheds thanks to sinus waves originating from loudspeakers without membranes that set the wires in vibration. Random ambient sounds are recorded by microphones and mixed into the soundscape. Visitors are completely absorbed in the soundmix in and around the sheds.

Programming and realisation in cooperation with Patrick Delges.

Pierre Berthet (BE) has studied percussion, improvisation, composition and music theory. He builds objects and installations from different materials. He regularly partakes in expositions and performances and has released two records.
