Towering above the audience a series of giant metal tripods support rotating arms.
Appearing to be artefacts from a hitherto unknown branch of science, Ethometric Instruments are curious, fascinating relics from a bygone age.
A series of giant towers hold suspended bell-like speaker cones. A team of 'bell-ringers' make the cones swing higher and higher until each arm soars up over the heads of the audience ringing forth with a peel of electronic tones.
Siren is a spectacular performance piece that takes place within an installation of large sound sculptures; metal tripods with rotating arms that emit electronic drones.
What would it be like to go to sleep and wake up in one thousand years time?
Join ‘Professor Lee’ for a short conversation about the nature of electricity, the invisible force that drives our technologically intense lives.
Swarm is a kinetic sound work designed for atrium spaces consisting of a series of suspended motors from each of which are hung three loudspeakers.
‘Choir’ is an early version of the work that evolved into ‘Siren’.
A spatial composition for an ensemble of kinetic sound machines.
Swing is a sound performance installation that consists of an array of bare loudspeaker cones suspended and swinging above the audience, each individually emitting a discrete sound.
Force field is a 30 minute performance for MIDI Theremin and sound machines. By interacting with the electro-magnetic ‘force field’ that surrounds the Theremin, Lee activates and controls a series of kinetic sound machines creating music and movement from the Ether.
The World Stylophone Quartet (from The Modulation) - Ray Lee and Harry Dawes 1994
Spin' develops and extends the research work begun in 'The Theremin Lesson'.
Hand built, early electronic circuitry powers spinning sirens, rotating loudspeakers, mechanical arms and machines.
The Detectors are kinetic sculptures that detect metal and electro-magnetic radiation and use this to generate a sound score
World Theremin Quartet is Ray Lee and Harry Dawes plus a duo of robotic assistants making up a quartet of Theremins.
