    Portable Sound Piece

Artist Statement:

    SOUNDBIKE is a portable sound piece that uses motion-based generators mounted to an ordinary bicycle to broadcast the sound of laughter as the bike is pedaled through the urban environment. The laughter is generated by playing sequences of short source clips that start when the bike reaches a cruising speed and then respond to the bike’s velocity. The piece is exhibited by loaning the bike on an honour system. During the symposium, several SOUNDBIKES will be available for loan to members of the general public.

    SOUNDBIKE was curated into Art Projects, Art Basel Miami Beach by Natalie Kovacs
