The project SOUNDED SCULPTURES encompasses 19 sculptures made of stone (Lipica quarry) and clay. The sculptures – percussion instruments – were created in the process of searching for new sound landscapes. The musicians of the group Slovene Percussion Project and the sculptors experimented; they spent a lot of time in quarries, looking for the sound of stone and clay. The result is fascinating.
(RE)SOUNDING SCULPTURES is a research project searching for sound in stone and clay – the form observes the needs of the sound and gives the material its visual value. The current project presents three lithophones and a few sound sculptures. We would like (RE)SOUNDING SCULPTURES to encourage interdisciplinary synergies – geologists, physics and musicians can find new opportunities in this most primary material. (RE)SONDING SCULPTURES are innovative; they use synergy to deliver the arts of
music and sculpture.
