spin thin slivers of gold freely in acoustic suspension. A standing wave holds the fragile material floating in the air. "Sonolevitation" is the first in a series of projects in preparation for microgravitational, near-vacuous environments and unfolds a sonic speculation on the neutralization of gravity.
"Untitled Sound Objects" is a series of works in which Pe Lang and Zimoun explore the properties of sound, materials, resonance and generative systems. Motors cause glass plates to vibrate and excite objects of various shape. The resulting oscillations create a sublime sonic landscape.
