Elektromagnetismus 3.Teil (Umformer)

Electroacoustic performance

Gregor Göttfert

2016 – ongoing

By manipulating an arrangement of motor driven metal gears and electromagnetic pickups -a reference to the working principle of electromechanical organs of the 1930s and the 1940s-, as well as by the utilization of components of a german 1930s radar system, repurposed as a effect device, Gregor Göttfert tries to explore the magnetic and electrical characteristics of the used materials and machines to work out their properties and faults.
Through filtering, superimposition and mutual modulation, a complex and multi-layered acoustic construct thus grows out of a multitude of different electromagnetic phenomena.
