There are some great images up at the Part B blog about the recent opening to the wonderfully titled Noisy show, curated by Part B chief Christine Scott-Young. I really wish I could have been there – or could get there now, cos my fingers are itching to press the ‘Everything… all at once’ button.
Distinctive noises have been on my radar since I made my piece for the Noisy exhibition. Normally it’s not something I consider in my work, but this time around I was obviously obliged to try and ramp up the volume of a piece. Noting the increase in timed photo-sharing apps of late (there’s a craze for it amongst a few of my Seattle metalhead friends – you know who you are!), I went old-skool a day or so ago and sound-bombed Turbo with this little beauty.
Having recently received a Type A pen for my birthday, (thanks to Arthur Hash’s blog for the heads up) the noise is actually what this little beauty makes when it opens. It has such close tolerance you can really get a loud pop from the seal when you pull the pen out fast.
