Liveworks 2018 | 100 Keyboards: Asuna

Created by pioneering Japanese sound artist Asuna, 100
Keyboards is a captivating site-specific listening experience.

One hundred cheap plastic keyboards play the same key,
generating an undulating sonic harmony both mesmerising and
mysterious. Sound waves on the same frequency multiply and
bounce off in a myriad of directions, creating a complex sonic field of interference and reverberation that swells and changes over time.
