Sound Stairs


Whilst uploading the Mekas pic for the blog entry below I noticed casually how much the optical soundtrack portion of the frame reminded one of the banister spindles one finds on stairs. Which all suggests an installation comprising a staircase in which the spindles are modelled from the optical soundtrack of some infamous film scene set on a staircase such as the last few frames of sunset boulevard etc.

Life imitates art, almost like Guy Sherwin's Musical Stairs (http://www.luxonline.org.uk/work/id/603578/index.html) in reverse? This will be your next piece I hope.

A good one for the audio visual programme at SWARM (sorry Hub) this Autumn?

As to making sound stairs, with modern lathes its possible to input a design and get it to cut the shape for you...all that's needed now is the rich patron.....

The stairs at Sketch could do with a makeover ;)

The Hub has been obliged to change its name. More news soon, as they say...
