Forest of Daxophone

Media installation

UCHIHASHI Kazuhisa [Japan]


A sound installation involving only the performance of a daxophone – a wooden musical instrument – and a multi-track composition replayed through 17-channel multi-speakers. Coupled with the music, video and light pulsates. Assorted tones made using various wooden fragments reverberate, and through their accumulation emerges a forest-like space in which the presence of nature and living creatures hangs in the air.
