Festivals: M:ST 5 Festival October 8 - 22, 2010.
Bin 15 is an interactive installation and audio performance work recording percussive sounds and natural reverberations within a modified grain bin. The sounds captured are informed by an industrious and agricultural way of life, the sounds of the prairie wheat belt, harkening back to a former way of life for some and a disappearing one for others. The performance and audio are a sort of swan song for this way of rural life that is being replaced by technologically advanced mechanisms and corporate ownership. Watch Lowe and collaborators perform 45-minute sets of musique concrete audio works inside the bin using the structure itself, farming implements and musical instruments, or create your own musique concrete.
