En lljudande leksakssnurra i plåt som De Groot en gång hittade på en loppmarknad blev starten på den stora installationen. Fascinerad av den färgglada barnleksaken som spelar en 3-ackordsmelodi undersökte hon dess patenterade teknik, toppens funktionalitet och själva instrumentet. Det hela resulterade i en kör av motoriserade snurror, hängande från taket. Varje instrument är inställt på olika sätt så när man går mellan dem kan olika interferensljud och taktslag höras.

 


Motorized instruments are hanging from the ceiling, creating a sound sculpture in the space. As a visitor you envelope yourself in slowly changing harmonium sounds.

An old spinning choral humming top that De Groot once found on a flea market was the start for the immersive installation. Fascinated by the colorful children’s toy making a 3 chord melody she researched its patented technique, the history of the top and the free-reed instrument.
It resulted in a choir of motorized spinning tops, hanging from the ceiling. Every instrument is tuned differently, when walking along them different interferences and beatings can be heard.

Marsika de Groot

Intrigued by the phenomena and history of optical sound, Mariska de Groot (1982, NL) makes, performs and composes for comprehensive analog light-to-sound instruments and installations which explore this principle in new ways. Her work often has a reference to media inventions from the past, with which she aims to excite a multi-sensorial and phenomenological experience in light, sound, movement and space.

Mariska obtained her BA in graphic design in Arnhem (2000-2005) and received her masters diploma at the ArtScience interfaculty in 2012. In 2009/2010 Mariska received a Startstipendium from Fonds BKVB. She won the BNG Workspace12 Project Prize in 2012, in 2014 she won the O68 Price for German/Dutch artists and in 2016 she received a Creatives Industries Talent development grant.
