Untitled [The Ongoing Significance of Steel and Flesh] – an installation by Terence Sharpe

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Performance: 06/12/2013

Installation 6 – 13 December 2013

A multi-channel installation for steel and electronics. Elements of a musical composition are fed into a suspended piece of steel in a darkened room. These elements resonate the steel and are dispersed back through the space in order to create an extended composition that takes place both in the room and within the metal

This installation is part of a wider research project into aesthetics of affect, where art produces a sensation through the use of sound and/as sculpture. The aim of the installation is to demonstrate how aural phenomena manifest themselves in space and how this can affect the listener’s perception. By using the space of the installation as a space for composition, the work can act to create a live agency of the listeners sense of perception with the intent of reconsidering what constitutes sensation.

Terence Sharpe is an Irish sound artist and composer living in Edinburgh, Scotland. His sound work is concerned with developing aesthetics in physicality and presence, affect and sensation, and he presents these works through harsh, reduced noise that interchanges with moments of restrained minimalism. He is currently working on his first album as well as installation work.
