Enchaînement, drum Pierre-Hugues Hadacek, 2016
Sound installation, 3mn 24, loop
Jeune Création 66e édition, Thaddaeus Ropac gallery Paris-Pantin
The installation is inspired by the principle of soundscape in Howard Broomfield's research. He found a link between music and the sound of the slamming wheels of a train on the city's railways. This connection inspired the drum's striking techniques in jazz and rock music.
A professional drummer, using a field sound recording of the Berlin's Metro, improvises with his drum set the diffferent rhythms of the slam of the train's wheels. The sound installation replays these sequences.
