concept Das Numen (Andreas Greiner, Julian Charriere, Felix Kiessling,Markus Hoffmann)
sound design Raphael Jacobs
For the artist collective Das Numen I developed an organ that functiones as a connector between natural phenomena and the exhibiton space. Based on the basic functional mechanisms of an organ the instrument translates the surface of the earth as it were a record disc. The globe is covered in a grid in steps of 10 degrees in longitude and latitude and the crossing points are scanned in a spiral shape from North Pole to South Pole. The wind intensity is accessed in relative live-time and translated into a specific sound range. For constuction and resonance of the pipes I used natural phenomena of the physics of organ building to play with changing wind pressure of the pipes which results in a unique range of sound outside the classical organ spectrum.
