Test Tone for Landscape 2005
5 walnut veneered record sleeves
34cm x 34cm x 4cm each
5 clear vinyl 12” records and ink
No.4: Collection of APT
Five clear vinyl records each containing five tracks. Each track is made up from domestic ambient sounds collected to create five different tones along a scale. Each of the five records is to play a separate tone simultaneously from five sound- systems places around an environment. Various harmonies of a chord can be heard depending on the position of a listener as they move through a space in relation to these five sound- systems. For any area, of any size, the precise positions for the sound- systems can be ‘located’ by the markings scratched into the wood grain on each record ‘sleeve’, each sleeve being fabricated from the same walnut- veneered bed headboard. Each record is allocated to five different owners.
