Untitled Sound Objects – 49 Prepared Vibration Motors generates a subtly shifting buzz of electrical feedback from bobbling black nubs at the ends of red and blue dangling wires. Suspended from the gallery ceiling, this work features a gridwork of wires and rubber components. Entirely composed of manufactured materials, this piece aurally resonates in way that is similar to a cluster of bees surrounding a hive.

Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared repetitive systems, the sculptures of Pe Lang + Zimoun incorporate commonplace industrial objects. Pieces in their Untitled Sound Objects series transform constructed acoustic and electrical noises into reverberating ambient hums that resemble natural systems.
