Reactions

Etiquette has picked up a variety of reviews and reactions.

Claire Sawers of The List gave it 4/5 . . . “Those clever Edinburgh FOUND boys have done it again. Their latest music-meets-art installation is a hands-on delight, making even the most tone-deaf feel like musical geniuses.” . . .

. . . while Create Digital Music say “what’s nice about the Etiquette is — surprise — the music. Rather than predictable electronic sounds, Etiquette echoes and vibrates with laptop-sampled acoustic timbres, such as stand-up bass, banjo, brass, flute, and even glockenspiel.” . . .

. . . and, on seeing the Etiquette demonstration as a featured video on YouTube, RedceLL1978 had this to say:

“….What? …The hell is this? And how in the hell did it become a featured video.. Wait, i get it.. This is some dude at a mental institution. And he “SEES” things, right? Like numbers, and geometric coordinates, right? HA HA BRILLIANT!!!! (yeah right.) Stop wasting server load.”

But if you’re in town, why not come down to the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop and judge it yourself?

The Etiquette table in one of its more contemplative moods

Ziggy plays the table. Throughout the day, the “mood” of the table changes and along with it the types of sounds, music and tempo it plays. Here it is being quite relaxed…

[Can’t hear the wonderful immersive quadraphonic sound on your YouTube clip? You’ll just have to come down and try the installation for yourself!]

Opening Night

Opening Night
Last night was the opening night of Magazine 07 at the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop and the unveiling of the Etiquette installation. We were all very happy to see and hear that it actually worked! It was great fun to watch people’s different responses to the installation – there was a such a wide variety of ways in which different people interacted with it. I’ve uploaded a few images of the finished table in action, click on the images to see more. Video clips coming soon.

Thanks to everyone who came along to the opening, and cheers to Anthony Schrag for joining in our improvised performance. It was a great night.
