Video documentation of the sound performance
„HUMANTURNTABLE - TRUBA“ by Andreas Trobollowitsch.

. . .
"HUMANTURNTABLE - TRUBA" is a site-specific sound installation consisting of one round platform,
five metal tubes, two chairs, and two trumpet players.
The trumpet players are playing while sitting on the chairs, which are fixed onto the round platform.
As the platform spins, the musicians blow their sound waves repeatedly into the entrance of the six meter long tubes, which remain in place.
During the performance, the players explore both the constantly changing and rotation-based acoustical facts, as well as the potential of the tubes to be used and understood in various ways — as an ephemeral extension of their instruments, as a mechanical effect device, and as a rhythmical structure that unfolds in a multi-dimensional composition.
"TRUBA" builds on Trobollowitsch’s long-term artistic approach and the research he has carried out over the last decade on rotary movement and instrument development. Conceptually, sonically, and in terms of scale, "TRUBA" is a continuation of those works.
