Orbits (2016)
Sound installation commisioned by Adelaide City Council.

Orbits is a sound work developed specifically for the Adelaide City Council walkthrough. The sonic material is drawn from two cyclical chord sequences played on a 1950’s reed organ routed to a harmonic modulator.

Since the two chord sequences are of different lengths, the sequences slip out of phase with each other (a phase relation) and – in conjunction with the harmonic modulator – result in complex harmonies and textures.
