Sculpture: Cycloïd-E

Cycloïd-E / Michel Décosterd, André Décosterd / Cod.Act

Cycloïd-E” is a fascinating sound sculpture created by composer André Décosterd and architect Michel Décosterd consisting of a horizontal pendulum with several movable metal tubes one . Each individual meter-long tube segment is equipped with sound sources and measuring instruments. As soon as an electric motor makes the pendulum start to rotate, “Cycloïd-E” morphs into an extraordinary kinetic-polyphonic music machine that generates a sound eerily reminiscent of the tension-ratcheting background music from LostTake a listen.
