Tarek Atoui

Wind House #1


The artist and electro acoustic composer Tarek Atoui initiated an ongoing cycle of research with sound and its perception.
‘Within’ is the principal series of artworks where sound is experienced through hearing, touch or sight questioning the way we hear, conceive, play and write music. It consists of 12 instruments for deaf and hearing persons, played by dozens of people to question their design and the way it produces sound.

Tarek asked us to develop the last piece of this panel.
‘Wind House #1’ is a listening and performative room, a music instrument, and a wind gathering device. Based on Johannes Goebel’s wooden SubBass Prototone from the 80’s. Working like a flute, a strong air flow is splitted by the beveled board, producing deep tones that resonate into the whole body and surrounding space.
