Paper Tones | Stedelijk at Trouw Amsterdam



installation: wooden cabinet, cd-players, amplifiers, six speakers. six channel sound composition – 20 minutes. April 2012.


Paper Tones is a commissioned sound art piece for the Stedelijk @ Trouw. The composition is site specific for the wooden cabinet which was used for paper storage and display. The sine waves are formed by the characteristics of the paper system: a new tonal system is developed in which the size of the paper determines the height of the tone, the weight of the paper determines the duration of the tone.
