Tuning to Spheres

Solo performance with musical glasses, sine tone generators and turntables

Duration circa 10min

Tuning to Spheres uses a range of wine glasses as 'lenses' to amplify sound from small loudspeakers.


A wine glass can be played by rubbing a finger around the rim in smooth circular orbits. It can also be played without being touched using sound alone.


In the performance sine tones are played from small loudspeakers. The player changes the pitch of the sine tone to 'tune in' to individual glasses as they rotate on turntables, prompting them to resonate as they pass underneath the speaker.
