Berlin-based multimedia artist “10cars” has produced a series of adorably industrial noise machines.
There are three boxes covered in tactile and inviting noise making devices. Some have strings or bands, some have thumb piano style twangers, some have springs and scrapers. All of them look brilliantly rough and ready like they were found in an abandoned school room untouched since the 1970s.
Apollo has a bit of everything, three strings, a band, a pair of twangers (I’m enjoying using that word at the moment) and some circles from a Dremel.
Euro is more kalimba-like with five thumb piano twangers to play with each with its own string. At the side is an arc of metal poles and some sort of scraper.
And finally Wheel is a spring held by some cords and a knob. This is the hardest to fathom.
It looks like all sorts of enjoyable noises could emerge from banging, twanging and scraping these boxes. Apparently all will be revealed at Superbooth at a Friday night party and they should be available in May ranging from €120 to €360.
