Signal Timothy Isherwood [sir o sir]

Signal is a sound structure composed of an aluminum pole frame. In the centre are three freely suspended aluminum rods that are resonated by percussion and generative music software. In terms of form and content, the metal structure is also representative of the bell tower or the radio antenna — both revolutionary and transformative in human history, especially as a common signal or sound sign that acoustically transmits information over great distances. The space- and sound-creating construction also presents itself as a visible and audible signal for the freedom of art and the freedom of all people, as an instrument and a temporary place for experimentation, for the perception of conversation and for free gathering.
