World Premiere of Katherine Balch and Ted Moore's Aluminum Forest

May. 01, 2021

On May 20, Aluminum Forest, a site-variable installation for hand-made automated aluminum wind chimes, will premiere at the Villa Aurelia Gardens in Rome. The work was created by composer Katherine Balch, currently in residence at the American Academy in Rome as the Elliot Carter Rome Prize Fellow, and composer and sound artist, Ted Moore. The work seamlessly combines technology with art to create a unique installation. 

(Aluminum Forest, version for 15 chimes, filmed on April 15, 2021)

The installation is powered by forty-eight handmade aluminum chimes that are independently agitated by DC motors and controlled via wifi to create a variety of gestures, trajectories, and timbres. Motion sensors allow the audience to participate in shaping the sonic environment, encouraging an interactive performative space.
