hmmm.....







Machinic remake of Rimsky Korsakov's composition "Flight of the Bumblebee".
Different levels of music notes written in the original composition were translated into the vibrations of 54 different motors attached to the windows of Østre Bergen.
Vibrating motors taken from mobile phones are placed in different locations over the big windows and installed contact microphones make a vocal performance out of them, picking up the live sound on site.

Motors are controlled in sync through arduinos in the exactly same sequence of the original composition, but are played in a slower speed.

The duration is 4 minutes and 30 seconds (ish) which is about three times longer than the original music operation.
