Description

The speaker horn is something I have been making and studying for quite some time. Through contemplating the spatial imaging and directionality of the horns, I began to think about utilizing these qualities dynamically.

The way the projected sound coming from this spinning horn is reflected off surfaces in the environment is similar to a Leslie unit. The resulting effect envelops the listener in a variety of merging wave fronts both emanating directly from the horn, and reflected off surfaces in the environment. Twisting phase relationships and Doppler-effect pitch-shifts occur within this unique kaleidoscope of sound. The rig has a foot pedal to vary the speed from slow undulations to a very fast swirl.

Specimen Double Spinning Janus Horn Speaker

When Andrew Bird played his violin through this unit for the first time it was immediately apparent that the two are a special match. Several people within earshot simply started to cry. I know I got a lump in my throat.
