Léon Spek – Resonances in metal

1 comment

“Resonances in metal” by Léon Spek (www.leonspek.nl) features two pieces with Léon’s invented instruments Ferrophone and Sonoplotter and computer processing.

Ferrophone is an instrument with two metal disk touching each other with two nails. Several playing techniques are used (bowing, brushing, rotating etc.) together with computer processing to explore the sonic possibilities of the Ferrophone.
Ferrophone was recorded live in KuS, Heerlen, NL (www.kunstencentrumsigne.nl)

Sonoplotter is built around its central steel disk that functions as a resonator and support for three springs. It is played using a rotating motorized bow and an electro-magnet. As with Ferrophone the computer is used to deeply transform and explore the sounds.
Sonoplotter was recorded live in Intro in Situ, Maastricht, NL (www.introinsitu.nl)
