Fluid Resistors
Originally conceived as an instrument for improvisation by Michel Waisvisz, the crackle box is reimagined here as a durational, installation work. By connecting parts of the circuit through water instead of through touch, new sonic possibilities emerge and the instrument is left to “play itself”. The wire, metal, and cardboard in the tank forms a sort of submerged ecosystem which also affects the sound produced by altering the flow of electricity. Audience members are also invited to touch and move parts of the circuit.
