Join us at the Auricle for the exhibition opening of Response Characters by Ted Apel.
The installation features six tubes that are used to impart strong resonances on sound recording and playback circuits in each tube. Each circuit independently alternates between recording sound and playing back its recording. The sounds recorded are a combination of the sounds produced by the other tubes, the ambient sounds of the space and, the resonance of the tube. In this way, the combined soundfield is an emergent property of the five tubes, that is, each tube’s sound is dependent on the contributions of the others.
Ted Apel is a sound artist whose sculptures and installations focus on the audio transducing element as the source of visual and sonic material. He has exhibited his work at sound art festivals and exhibits in the US, Poland, Canada, Austria and Gernamy.
Ted Apel received his M.A. in electroacoustic music at Dartmouth College and a Ph.D. in computer music at the University of California, San Diego. He currently lectures in Electronic Music / Sonic Arts at the New Zealand School of Music, Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand.
