The Goethe Institut Hanoi will premiere two brand new sound installations by the German artist and composer Tim Otto Roth. Both installations, hanging from the ceiling above the visitor, describe a circular motion but in different ways. In the first installation, sine tones circulate in a ring of 23 illuminated “sound pixels”. The second consists of six translucent tubes of different lengths fixed to a hexagonal body circulating slowly above the heads of the audience.
This horn-like construction permits the playing of saturated deep tones, which change their pitches slightly due to their relative motion — also described as the so-called Doppler effect. By rotation and by switching tones on and off, which can be followed by illumination, a rotating sound field is created, sounding to the listener like a vibrating sound field.
The exhibition opens on Oct. 12 at 6pm.
Admission is free. The exhibition will be held at the Goethe Institute Hanoi, 56 Nguyen Thai Hoc, Ba Dinh, Hanoi. For more information visit facebook.com/Goethe.Institut.Hanoi/
