Airbag/14Holes is a hybrid sound sculpture somewhere between a bagpipe, an organ, and a children’s toy. To create sound, it uses abandoned recorder flutes that, following forced musical exploration during adolescence, were never played again. Airbag/14Holes will provide air to a group of flutes. A heavy, continuous interaction between the flutes produces the emergent sound, like a dysfunctional organ finally finding its voice after a long period of silence.
Lukas De Clerck will use Airbag/14Holes as his instrument by manipulating the air flows in the performative presentation at bb15-Space for Contemporary Art in Linz.
