Vacuum cleaner music

“Celeste Boursier-Mougenot’s Harmonichaos is a sound installation made of 13 vacuum cleaners fitted with a harmonica in their mouth and a switch that turns them on/off. Each is connected to a sound frequency analyzer (a modified electronic guitar tuner).

The tuners generate acoustic activity in the harmonicas and react by producing unpredictable orchestrations of the modules’ chords, prearranged by the artist/composer.”
