STEIM's workshop: a lecture by soundbike artist Kaspar König
 
Untitled Document

Soundbikes - BIKE YOUR BEAT by Kaspar König

A workshop in which do-it-yourself manipulation of ordinairy bicycles leads to high-end sound-generators and performing instruments. Bring a bike and transform it together with the knowledge and enthousiasm of inventor-artist Kaspar König.

Creating acoustic extensions for the bicycle sounds like a contradiction-in-terms to the design of a bicycle. In this workshop everybody is invited to discover the many sounds hidden in the bicycle itself and the bicycling. To make a regular bicycle-sound we can easily neglect the maintainance of a bicycle. By not only turning the bicycle upside down but by actively adding sound-sensors, we'll discover the possibilities of soundbiking. Add-ons can be everything from a playing-card and laundry wedges, to fully powered amplification for strings, microphones and all other things that fit the conditions of the soundbicycle and its creative maker.

How can a bicycle brake become a brake beat? By turning the wheel regularly, a bicycle likely becomes a time-pulse or measure. By finding the right spots to control the sound input, more musical patterns can be discovered while the wheel is turning. Now it's up to our imagination to invent all kinds of little things we could try to mount on the existing mechanisms as well as discover new mechanisms.

Can every bicycle become a musical instrument? Basically yes, if some parts are still rotating, sounds can be created. Although a full functional bicycle can ride on the streets and the street is the best trigger for the soundbike!

Is there a composition in the street? That is a good question. For many reasons I believe several streets sound better then others with and without the use of a soundbike, depending on the charactaristics of the bike and the street. Drive your soundbike outside and experience the biggest score of the world: the street! Let your ear decide!
