NIASONO
Sound-instrument
2011-2012

hunting horn, war horn, loudspeaker,
trumpet, saxophone, siren,
ship horn, air horn, bagpipe.

hunt, battle, alert,
concert, firestorm, school radio,
demonstration, riot control, jazz.

the acoustic funnel is an invention
for the amplification of sound
which helps its user stand out
among equals.

what is the sound of power?

how is the murmur of the crowd,
our voice (nia = our, sono = voice),
turned into a clang of authority?

I’m making a digital tone-instrument
inspired by this topic.
