Jonáš Gruska, Axis Mundi Sound Distribution System

A performance exploring generative, algorithmic, or chaotic patterns, speaker choreography, psychoacoustic effects and ultrasonic parametric speakers via a custom built sound reproducing tower. Axis Mundi Sound Distribution System is ever-evolving modular sculpture designed to emit, reflect, and direct (ultra)sonic waves to space from single axis between the Heaven and the Earth. It currently consists of 7 or 8 channels of rotating audio, (sound) reflective plate, three motors, LED, and UV illumination.
