Cloud Machines (2011)
In collaboration with Idetsuki Hideaki: for rice paper, wire, computer controlled stepper motors, transducers, max/msp

Mechanical cloud-like creatures constructed of rice paper and wire hover throughout the space, changing shape, moving subtly and suddenly. Sounds of crumpling paper, stepper motor clicks, humming, wire tightening, transducers, lightbulbs, computers.

"Cloud Machines" is a collaboration between sound artist Rama Gottfried(US) and visual artist Idetsuki Hideaki(JP), reflecting on the nature of dreams and physicality and is composed specifically for the spatial and acoustic characteristics of Complice.
