Amplified Bricks at Willows Nest
Bricks cast with embedded audio electronics allow the ubiquitous building module to function as sound objects when amplified.
The performance features a selection of bricks from a system that is being developed to construct full-scale sonically active architectural environments. Made from a range of materials—concrete, plaster, wax, silicone, dirt—each brick expresses its unique sonic signature when activated by a performer or stacked upon another, resulting in physical feedback.
