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 works that investigates the practical materiality of the microphone and violate the basic rules and principles of audio technology. My interest is to go beyond technology’s vocational functions and set a new kind of relation with it.
