Sewing Machine Orchestra - Martin Messier

Sewing Machine Orchestra

Click the link above to view the work.

I found this work a few days ago and really enjoyed it. Messier uses the noise of several sewing machines to create a piece of sound work.

SEWING MACHINE ORCHESTRA IS ENTIRELY ORCHESTRATED WITH THE ACOUSTIC NOISES PRODUCED BY 1940’S SEWING MACHINES AMPLIFIED BY MEANS OF MICROCONTACTS AND PROCESS BY COMPUTER, TACKLES THE LISTENER IMAGINATION PRIMARILY THROUGH THE EVOCATIVE POWER OF THOSE OLD INDUSTRIAL MARVELS. WHETHER THEY REMIND OF SPECIFIC INCIDENTS OR RECALL THE RELATIONSHIP TO SUCH OBJECTS, FEW PEOPLE REMAIN INDIFFERENT WHEN THEY SEE THEM. – (taken from link above).
