timbretan’s First Ever Sound Installation

The Double Double Pendula (The DDP)

timbretan’s first ever sound installation, The Double Double Pendula (The DDP) was the product of 18 months’ work, and features two big double double pendula that can be converted to Rott pendula. A sound generator is embedded in the end of every pendulum arm. You can swing the pendula and observe the chaotic trajectories and their sonic spatialisation. This installation was first showcased at Royal Conservatoire The Hague in June 2018.
