"Silophonic"

Released

     10/05/2012



"Silophonic" is a new work from Bob Guido that explores the sounds and sights of Silo #5 -


Silophone

instrument, sonic inhabitation in Montréal, Canada. The video combines new


music from Bob Guido, created by using the natural reverberation and acoustics of the


Silophone process and photography by

Diana Shearwood

Bob created this new music using electric guitar as the source instrument combined


with the Silophone as a sound treatment instrument. Silophone makes use of the


incredible acoustics of Silo #5 by introducing sounds using communication technologies,


into a physical space to create an instrument which blurs the boundaries between


music, architecture and net art. Sounds arrive inside Silo #5 by telephone or internet.


They are then broadcast into the vast concrete grain storage chambers inside the silo.


They are transformed, reverberated, and coloured by the remarkable acoustics of the


structure, yeilding a stunningly beautiful echo. This sound is captured by microphones


and rebroadcast back to its sender.
