instrument(o):04 [intonapaisaje], is a sound sculpture that responds to changes in the environment. Through the use of light, temperature and humidity sensors, data information is collected from the environment in realtime to generate sounds that vary in pitch and speed.
The work reuses and transforms into a sound sculpture a wind tunnel prototype originally developed by the PREC in Gurabo, for the U.S. Department of Energy Collegiate Wind Competition in 2016. The piece and the title refer to and serve as a tribute to the Intonarumori, a family of musical instruments developed in 1913 by the futurist artist and composer Luigi Russolo to generate acoustic noise with the “futurist orchestra”. The sculpture was developed during an art residency at the Museum of UAGM and the program was developed in collaboration with students from the Engineering Department at the UAGM.
