メルボルン Tram Vibrations: Live in Combino
角田 俊也 + HACO     

日時: 2013 年8月31日

場所: Sonic City フェスティバル 、メルボルン (オーストラリア)

パフォーマンス 1: 7:30pm - 8:15pm

パフォーマンス 2: 8:45pm - 9:30pm

Toshiya Tsunoda and Haco performed inside a tram on a round trip from the Melbourne city centre to the East Brunswick and back.

Tsunoda captures solid vibrations using a piezo-ceramic sensor and a stethoscope, and Haco uses her Stereo Bugscope (inductive microphones) system to catch electromagnetic sounds.

The first edition of work, The TramVibration recording project was presented at the View Masters Osaka-Melbourne Remix Exhibition in Osaka in 2007. “The concept is to create environmental art with normally inaudible vibrations, and the tram seems like the perfect location for the project. It’s a real audio trip for both of audience and performers to observe sounds and feel subliminal vibrations inside a moving tram.”

Testing at Yarra Trams - Southbank Depot on August 30.


The tram had a symmetrical design. “It's interesting that the electromagnetic field was almost symmetric as well.
