sound structures (John Jones project space April 09)

Sound structures is a series of pyrophones, which are instruments designed to be played by fire. It consists of three instruments made from box section aluminium. Each instrument has three tubes giving a total of nine fundamental pitches. The Idea was to design a sculptural piece, which could be used in a number of ways. The instrument has been played, sound recordings of the space were made from inside the tubes, and images were made using the reflective qualities of the inside of the tubes.
