‘Sound Cellar’ was an instrument and participatory sound installation built for the summer art symposium PostsovkhoZ 6 in the basement of MoKS. It was constructed from old ceramic roof tiles that were taken down from an old barn in Mooste that was being renovated. This piece is a development of the Resonance Ensemble idea conducted in the Stazione di Topolo in 1999.
Groups of 10-15 people were taken to the basement and given small mallets. They were first asked to follow simple rhythmic patterns that I played, then were allowed to freely improvise as they wish. Out of the random playing, “organized” sounds would occur (rhythmic patterns, repetitive sequences, etc).
