Single Strokes


In this work I play the snare-drum with a pair of microphones. The recordings explore the physical properties and affordances of the microphone and presents a more intuitive and analog way to approach audio technology. By giving a body to the microphone (by using it as a drumstick) the work reflects on the physical affection and corporal aspect of material culture and how this sensual attraction subverts the conventional modes of consuming technology.

Single Strokes is part of a series of actions that investigates the practical materiality of the microphone and violate the basic rules and principles of audio technology. More actions here: http://www.davidetidoni.name/tag/microphone/
