David Bloor is a sound artist based in London whose work encompasses composition, field recording, installation performance and sculpture. A wave is a disturbance, a change from dormancy to activity. Using a modified music box connected to a modular synthesizer, the artist seeks to explore indeterminate actions and reactions. Sound and sonic events are triggered by the release of tension within the music box forcing a spring reverb tank to self-oscillate into feedback. This is then tuned using a bandpass filter and feedback into the synthesizer to determine the pitch of the composition.
