Aargh Gert Aertsen 2015
Aargh is an exploration into the mechanics of speech. Inspired by the famous Wolfgang Von Kempelen, Aargh explores the possibilities to create a site specific sound installation for the 11th floor of the Overtoon Kanal office building. This particular building stands high and free in the city center of Brussels. Wind has a strong impact on it. The offices are drafty spaces when you open them up on both sides. Can the energy created by the wind be used as a force or input to generate sound, which sounds remotely like speech.
