Robin Fencott on Robin and Clive Fencott at The Other Room

Robin Fencott has reflected on last year’s performance at The Other Room. You can see the performance in our archive in the middle column of this website.

The second piece, titled ‘Schläfli {5,3} Arduino Bluebird’ is based around typewritten text attached to the faces of a dodecahedron. I constructed the dodecahedron specifically for this performance and installed within it an accelerometer and wireless transmitter broadcast orientation information. During performance, rotating the dodecahedron caused changes to a range of live vocal processing and sound synthesis.
