Cordiox

Ariel Guzik

Cordiox, by Ariel Guzik, is a complex machine, four meters in height, which describes the environment through sound. This is due to its two complimentary elements: on one hand, 180 long, tense chords distributed throughout three harps, and on the other, a unique large cast cylinder made of pure quartz. This machine emits a subtle, tonally expansive crystalline cadence, thereby creating a unique listening experience. (Englisch)

It is important that the project to be developed there actively relates to a place of intrinsic aesthetic appeal. Consequently, the curatorial proposal consists in creating a sonorous dialogue with the space.
