ART & SOUND & MUSIC

'Lullaby for the Brave' is a soundsculpture consisting of several found objects combined with self made objects. It operates independently, moves and makes sounds. It's heart is a recordplayer that spins randomly in variable speeds. A dismantled umbrella, attached to the recordpayer is turning around it's own axis. By doing so it moves a tennis ball clockwise between a flickering energy saving light bulb and a spinning computer harddrive. Inside the tennisball is a electro magnetic pickup installed which amplifies the electromagnetic fields of the lightbulb and the harddrive and makes them audible. By circulating between the two electrical elements a simple beat is created which continously varies in sound due to the variation of the electro magnetic fields of the the bulb and the harddrive.
