Musician Nick Campbell (Wages) presents Persono, an interactive sound art installation.
“There will be a few central sonic elements,” says Campbell, “guitars played by falling sand, by automated motors and also played manually by motors that attendees will trigger. My goal is to create a unique sound-art experience that is conceptual, but also sonically pleasing. I usually approach music from a pop perspective (thinking in terms of songs versus sounds alone), and an installation offers the chance to think in terms of pure sound and how people interact with that sound.”
