Sirens reflection - Broc
I don’t think I have heard such a heavenly sound in my life.
However, a couple weeks ago I was walking around at the sculpture garden and found a similar heavenly resonance coming row of trees with wind chimes in the branches. I’m glad to have found a similar sound, because that was an amazing sound and I’m sad that I probably won’t be able to hear sirens again. While the sounds in the garden were similar, there really isn’t anything that can replicate the resonant sound of the Sirens.
One reason why I loved the piece is because of its structuralist approach to sound-making. The overall sound was broken down into each individual tone, and the intricacy of the sound was emphasized. Also, I was able to understand a single sound on a more fundamental and complete level. The final combination of annoying sounds producing one beautiful sound was powerful to experience.
Also, I loved the piece because the sound was so alive. Because of the spinning sounds, the sound really seemed to be in constant flux, always alive, reacting, dynamic. The ability to visually see the sound physically in motion reinforced this understanding of the dynamic sound.
