"BZZZ! the sound of electricity" is a sound sculpture by Cécile Babiole.
Exhibition at Plateforme-Paris, June 2012
By reinventing an obsolete low-tech sound wave generator in this all-digital age, "Bzzz !" serves as a commentary on the history of technology and a tribute to unprocessed, unsampled analog sound : in a word, the raw sound of electricity.
The set : 6 micro-controlers, 6 resistors scales, 12 small PA et 24 small loudspeakers.
Video Quentin Aurat, sound recording Anton Mobin.
