Lazy Studies (2018)
for a modified lazy susan with audio feedback

Incorporating the design of a Lazy Susan (a turntable for dining) as its foundation, Lazy Susan is used as a performative tool that allows for the translation of our musical body gestures into sounds via sonic feedback. This mechanically and digitally mediated feedback is made musical through various turning speeds that set various relationships between the three speakers and microphones. Its sound is further filtered analogically by various objects, such as finger cymbals and papers that are used for this piece.
