Nada Nuevo is a sound installation that uses unbalanced stepper motors attached to polished steel to interpret songs based on its location and purpose. Nada Nuevo’s next song will be played in the Hexapod laboratory, where they test the stress of metal parts and walls until they fail.
‘A sound installation that combines unbalanced stepper motors and mirrors to interpret music.’
Nada Nuevo is a sound installation that makes usage of unbalanced stepper motors attached to polished steel to interpret songs based on the location and purpose of the installation. Nada Nuevo is a conceptually layered work in which every element of the work constitutes an idea on itself. It uses the brute sounds of machinery and metal and brings them to a state in which they turn musical. The audience its opinion and its reflection are in the center of this installation. It is clear that the artist has a high level of interest in discussing the purpose of Art and Music for the individual and the collective, as well as applying different psychological biases as conceptual and methodological backgrounds to his work. Through his art and installations, the artist always asks the viewer a question about their own experiences living.
