Brighton Monochords Rock

I went down to the Brighton Festival recently to catch a few things Brian Eno was organising down there including a showing of his great 77 Million Paintings and an installation called Speaker Flowers in Marlborough House. Here is a small video I made of the experience.

I got approval to film there from the gallery staff so I presume its ok to show here. The most interesting part of the exhibit for me was the monochords he made there. He used electric guitar parts and amps and they sounded really good. I’m not sure if he meant for them to be interactive, but many people were retuning them by adjusting the amount of pebbles in their baskets. It was great.

Speaking of monochords, here are some extreme versions. I’m getting quite interested in how frequencies affect the body by making it resonate at the moment.
