This is an interactive sound sculpture. Each key on the typewriter is connected via monofilament to a small hammer, which rests against a sheet of steel. The act of typing causes low, rumbling tones. I made this experimental instrument in response to the writing style (or voice) of a friend and asked him to read his work as a score for performances.

The image above is from a collaborative performance with writer, Clay Blancett.

Here’s a link to Clay’s most recent book:

Avenue of Champions
