Speaking Characters Wannes Deneer Jan 2022 -
Speaking characters is a series of sounding collages/speaker sculptures. Each sculpture has its own visual and aural character, together they form a polyphonic choir.
A speaker is a seemingly simple system that can reproduce a complexity of sounds and emotions. Wannes Deneer studies every part of a loudspeaker and its effect on the sound. By physically manipulating his speakers, cutting, gluing and adding other materials, he models the sound physically. In this way Wannes creates his own characters.
