Fyra ofoner


Invitation and Unwritten Score

Fyra Ofoner (Four Ophones)--by Erik Sandelin and Magnus Torstensson--is an invitation and an unwritten score for a composition that lasts as long as the exhibition does. You and other visitors take part as audience, musicians, and co-composers. No one knows what will happen or how it will sound. Be prepared for everything from subtle interference etudes, to collaborative chanting and big, bad rhythm orgies.

An ofon is a loudspeaker with an attached telephone headset. When a visitor has recorded a sound into an ofon, it is repeated infinitely until another sound is recorded into the same ofon. When all four ofons are used, no one can predict what will happen or how it will sound. Videos on the website. [blogged by Regine on we-make-money-not-art]
