For eleven months and some days, I recorded moments in my life as 'soundstories'. I would focus my attention on the sounds around me, isolating each one in my mind, and record descriptions of these sounds in chronological order. In this performance, I recollect these memories, pulling them in and out of the labyrinth of my mind.

A reminiscent portrait in sound. A performative recollection of memories. The sclupture was designed to be a sanctuary of thoughts. This piece was performed at Littlefield, Brooklyn.

Process // Initial sketches of the intrument and material moodboard.

Process // The sculpture is composed of two curved frames. The frames are made using wire mesh, yarn, metal and wooden supports. Wrapping yarn around the mesh became a collective community activity at ITP, NYU.

Process // After testing several stretch sensors, rotary encoders, light sensors and soft potentiometers, I decided to use six 10-turn-potentiometers attached to the wooden rollers inside the sculpture, that change value as the fabric moves on the rollers. I used an Arduino MKR 1000 to connect the potentiomenters to Max/MSP.
