Conference of the Rumbling Rice
SOUNDINMOTION 6  //  Zürich, Switzerland  May 2021

Sound Installation
Bags of rice, aluminium sheet, 2 large speaker, MaxMSP

Thousands of rice grains gather together in the hopes of figuring out how to respond to agitation caused by sound. Responding to changing frequencies, the rice grains move and dance in and out of diverse formations. The fun for the spectator lies in watching the different ways synchronous movement is expressed.
