"Stringed" Sculpture Meets Music
Project 2017-12-11 17:34:22 +1300
"Stringed" Sculpture Meets Music, is an exhibition that is planned to be held in 2018 at Space Gallery in Whanganui. This exhibition is an interactive collection of sculptural instruments I have made over the past 3 years. The exhibition will not only showcase a number of fully functional sculptural stringed instruments but many will be interactive and recorded. The plan also is to hold at least 2 instrument making workshops during the exhibition.
This Exhibition is the halfway mark for a larger vision which may take another 3 years to complete. The overall concept is that I create 10 guitars with each guitar having an extra string compared to the previous one. So far I have made a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 stringed instruments, plus other experimental ones. When I reach the 10 Stringed instrument I will then invite 10 musicians to choose an instrument and explore its possibilities. I will then start the process of video and sound recording 3 pieces of music inspired from different themes. After which I would like to turn this concept into a stage performance.
The possibilities are unlimited and changes happen along the way. With all of the past projects within my art practice this project is the most exciting and the future opportunities within this new field of direction is a mystery. This goal has created a new journey for me that can be shared through direct interaction with my instruments or interaction through listening. As I have already experience with taking some of my instruments to Mic Night at the Petone Depot the awe and delight of the interaction puts a smile on my dial.

This is my experiment with my Yaybahar or Space Chello. I have made some changes since then and also constructed a 1 String version

Much of my journey is making the tools to construct the guitars.
