Metamorphosen

Apples, transducers, audio playback

Metamorphosen is an installation for 3 apples, transducers and audio playback. Various field recordings, made with a low-quality portable recording device, are played back through the transducers, which are placed inside the apples – thus the apples are the vibrating body through which sound is propagated.

The piece animates the apples through vibration and sound, thus giving them a voice and agency of their own. Finally, it is a playful nod to the painterly tradition of the still life, René Magritte, Richard Strauss, various biblical references, and Jonny Appleseed.
