Loops pay tribute to the music lab of the 50s and 60s where experimentation with analogue magnetic tapes built the ground for modern music making.
This highly intuitive apparatus allows anyone to play around with loop-based musical compositions. The 5 inconspicuous circular sound machines can be operated by anyone, and even though they are primarily digital, their interface is purely kinetic and manual which allows the user to quickly understand how to use them.
The speed and playback direction of the preprogrammed samples is manipulated by a steel controller wheel. Its material properties such as weight and resistance, consciously introduce a hand-operated element to sound control, at the same time making the artwork play with both the digital and the analogue realms. Its simple and elegant form together with vibrant light animations create a corresponding visual reflection of the soundscape lab created by the public and form an unusual audio-visual spectacle.
