2008 sound.of.bottles #1-T 聲瓶-裝置版 #1-T

此作的概念來自於吹瓶聲。光一個瓶子就能擁有豐富的泛音,因為可以透過水位去改變聲音頻率、氣流大小,再加上吹嘴的前後搖擺,都可以改變泛音位置。兩個瓶子一起運用則可以製造音頻的撞擊。節奏則來自控制氣流的開關――電磁氣閥――經由電腦透過Arduino送出0與1的訊號,控制交流電氣閥的開關(相同的原理亦可用在任何交流電氣的開關上)。在物理的聲響製造當中,同時穿插電腦數位的即時採樣,反覆堆疊出一種全新的奇異聲場。

The ideas of creating the Sound of Bottles came from the sounds made by bottles when air is blown into them. A simple bottle has rich overtones whose frequencies can be changed through alteration of water levels, air flow or back-and-forth movement. With two bottles, the interference of the audio frequencies creates more effects. Electromagnetic gas valves control the tempos through the signals of 0 and 1 sent by an Arduino microcontroller board (the same principle is applied to the switches of appliances using alternating currents). Together with some other sounds recorded by digital tools in real-time, the bottles produce peculiar sound effects.
