To best describe Syzygryd, we decided to copy some details from their site (www.syzygryd.com):
Syzygryd is a town square for the collaborative creation of music. It’s a public space, it’s a sculpture, and it’s a professional musical instrument. It’s the most beautiful expression we can imagine of the joy we take in community, music, technology, fire, sculpture and architecture.
Three large custom hardware grid sequencers. Each controls a single instrument and they share a clock, so they’re all synchronized. By controlling time, pitch, and harmony, these devices make it easy for people with no musical training or talent to create melodious compositions.
The consoles are arranged at three equidistant points around a 60′ diameter circle, far enough apart that the participants can see one another but can’t communicate verbally. Each console reflects the state of the others. Three people collaboratively create a continuously evolving piece of music without communicating, except through the music itself.
The center of the circle is a huge metal tornado of cubes, pulsing with synchronized sound, light, and fire.
So, in other words, it’s really cool!
RTHM’s contribution to this massive art installation was to send the parts for three of our tracks (one breaks, and two drum & bass). They included these tracks alongside a number of other productions from local San Fransisco audio talent.
Thanks to all the smart people at Syzygryd and Laughing Squid for allowing us to be a part of this project. And, for future reference, let us know if you need any music for your sound/light/fire art installations. We’ll be happy to help!
Wow…this one went through so many iterations before sending it in to Chuck. First off, Mr. Love had some of the best samples to work from (hookaphone to perfume commercial)! Then we got into the skit stuff. BTW, thanks to Christopher Whitsett and Chris Stowe for incredible vocal contributions.
Also be sure to check out Busy’s dub version…
