Doppler Machine

 An updated version of the machine I created for the RCA Work In Progress show this January:

Inspired by the Leslie speaker, another sound modification device developed by Donald Leslie between the 1930s - 1960s, the Doppler machine is also capable of modulating sound and creating the Doppler effect as the disc with the speakers on, spins around. 

It was used as part of a performance with RCM musicians earlier this year, and I'll hopefully continue to develop it and work on further performances and collaborations (If you're a London-based musician, or someone with an interest in sound art, and would like to hear your instrument played through the disc, or to share thoughts, please get in touch!)

Sonic Experience

On Tuesday 28th, a group of us from the RCA and the RCM held a performance at the RCA showcasing some of our latest sound pieces. 

I put together some posters and flyers for the event, and me and Lara Poe performed two sound pieces with a new version of my Doppler machine.

In the first performance, we created a soundscape by using feedback, holding a microphone up to the speakers in the Doppler machine. Clarinetist Piotr Dec joined us for the second performance, using a score and Max MSP patcher prepared by Lara, creating a "call and response" effect between the two.
