Resonant Forms

Tag : Talk

This talk will describe the inspiration for Pigott’s sculptural speaker designs as emerging from an investigation into the physical and formal characteristics of objects such as organ pipes, sound systems and architectural environments where spaces, enclosures, ports and materials all serve to create unique sonic behaviour. The use of "cone-less" moving coil exciters to maximise the physical and material elements of the sculptural loudspeakers will be explained alongside a historical and cultural context for the custom and sculptural loudspeaker. The work will be discussed in the context of "Speaker Park", a collaboration with other international artists which resulted in an immersive compositional assemblage premiered at Borealis international festival of Sound Art and Experimental Music in Bergen, Norway in 2019.
