“Steel String Quartet” played by Ars Nova: Michael Carlqvist, David Sundberg, Nguyễn Thanh Thủy and Stefan Östersjö.

Originally built as an installation (click here for more details), a swing made of steel wire was played by visitors and amplified via headphones. It was part of a soundwalk made for the IMAGONIRMIA residency in Chiaravalle/Milano (Italy), June 2017.

The installation was then built in four copies at the Darmstadt Ferienkurse 2016 and a piece was written with the precious collaboration of four percussionists: Stanis Pili, Vincent Caers, Nagisa Shibata and Oded Gheizals. A video of the first performance is here.

This video shows how I built the swings:
