Pendulum deals with the movement of swinging, the sound it makes, and those experienced when one swings closer and farther away from something. An aspect of human auditory experience is captured and rendered into a sound installation. The installation comprises several loudspeakers set up in a U-shape. Analogous to a rocking motion, the sound “travels” from one speaker to the next, thus also moving past the recipient. Despite the static spatial environment, the feeling of movement, or of being moved, is created.

Pendulum creates an architecture generated from acoustic signals that goes beyond the classical architectural possibilities of the space. Thereby – due to the particular positioning of the loudspeakers – the sound itself becomes a building material.
