Performance of a new sound installation developed during a residency at
iEAR Studios. Q&A follows performance.
Janicek has built a site-specific sound installation that might be
considered an oversized string instrument. The installation consists of
metal strings that are secured to the floor by found metal objects.
Some strings drop from the ceiling and hold metal pieces off the
ground. The strings are tuned and played with a bow or finger and the
sound is processed in real-time using Max/MSP. The project is a
collaboration with New York sound artist Michael Delia and The Jesse
