Zimoun


video

The sound of 25 woodworms magical and the stuff of nightmares. When timber is imported the wood is listened to to detect sound of infestation. I have to say . . . isn't nature wonderful!

"The sound sculptures and installations of Zimoun are graceful, mechanized works
of playful poetry, their structural simplicity opens like an industrial bloom to
reveal a complex and intricate series of relationships, an ongoing interplay
between the «artificial» and the «organic». It's an artistic research of simple
and elegant systems to generate and study complex behaviors in sound and motion.
Zimoun creates sound pieces from basic components, often using multiples of the
same prepared mechanical elements to examine the creation and degeneration of
patterns." Tim Beck
