Marit Wolters is a Viennese artist who creates sculptures that speak. They generate their own world of micro-sounds. Rod Modell is a sound designer operating primarily from Detroit (with an EU home-base in Amsterdam).
Here, he moulded the sounds of Marit‘s works in the same way that she works her materials, creating a generative soundscape designed for museum playback during Marit’s exhibitions, constructed with sounds of Marit’s sculptures, drones, field recordings, and cosmic sounds.
The result of this collaboration is Cocoon, a 74 minute CD of music by Rod and Marit, with a 24-page 8″ square booklet featuring Marit’s work. The package also includes a poster that reproduces the original playbill from the debut exhibition of Cocoon in Linz, Austria.
A collector’s item, limited and numbered to only 300 pieces.
