The sculpture is a continuation of my research in chaotic systems and machines that produce complex sound patterns, purely acoustically. The machine can be considered as a generator of distorted psalms, with deconstructed melody and harmony, bringing a clash between old and new sound. The generated chaotic sound phrases will eventually be used by Kim Richard Adler Mejdahl in his audio-visual exhibition ‘Lilith Grotto’ at Overgaden in November 2020.
