“One of the most fascinating things about electric music is that daily objects can be used to generate astonishing acoustics.” That was the interpretation that two amateur garden-swimmers, sub-tle. and miu fell for. Later they brought their musical interface, the swimming pool to the 14th century tower in Mons, Tour Valenciennoise, with certainty. The installation ‘the pool’ is an open incubator bringing up the cascade reaction of the water and sound behavior. Continuously new audio textures are coaxed from the information generated by the vibrating water surface, and they feedback, oscillate the water, metamorphose into next form in the chain reaction. In the chamber, a melody arises and disappears, the harmony blooms and dies corresponding to the motion of water, as two japanese transmedia artists also work with the following interpretation, thus, “One of the most fascinating things in every aspects, is to encounter, something never recur.”

the sound installation “the pool” by sub-tle.+ miu at the international sound art festival “City Sonics 2009” in Mons/Belgium.

Their altered swimming pool works as an autonomic musical interface to generate the audio texture from water’s behaviour, and continuously updates the soundscape inside the 14th century tower, Tour Valenciennoise, during the festival.
