Bicycle Mixing System
Recorded and performed during Doktor Døvs Skjærgårdsseminar in Bergen June 7-9 2013, the Bicycle Mixing System consists of three - yes - bicycles, each equipped with an amplifier and speaker which transmits the sound of one of the following pre-composed sound sources: bass; beats and a combination of eclectric ukulele and organ. By placing microphones at each extreme side of the large-sized hall and manouvering the bicycles around the hall, a giant mixing system was in effect created, allowing unpredictable volume and panning effects that could not be replicated with a normal mixing board. Spatial music indeed. Alternatively, the experiment may be regarded as a public health initiative for professors and sound engineers alike.
