Exposition

ODONTOPHONES (2020)

Martí Ruiz i Carulla, Sudhanshu Tewari

About this exposition

This exposition focuses on an important portion of the Baschets’ work: the use of clamped rods to create complex systems of oscillation. We intend to show the complexity and richness of the Baschet world, as well as proving the efficacy of their theoretical approach that allows anyone (and everyone) to understand and create sound objects. We propose the term odontophones for a wide family of sound sculptures based on the use of clamped rods, as a humorous but serious tribute to the Baschet acoustic system, fostering a finer understanding of a great variety of complex sound devices. In this exposition we offer explanations of the Baschet perspective and audio visual examples to help appreciate how these sound devices work.
