Red (in it’s different iterations) is an investigation about the interaction with unstable acoustic feedback systems. The piece consists in building an acoustic feedback environment, setting up several wire nets and placing them in relation to the architectural features of the space. These speaker-wire nets are built using both speakers and piezoelectric microphones in order to produce acoustic feedback.

This installation is composed with footage of a kinetic sculpture. It consists of an oil drum mounted in a rectangular steel frame with an axis that allows it to be spun by hand. A speaker inside of it is used to play sound, which is filtered by the spinning of the machine.
