Revolutions (2016-7)

mixed media (photographs, altered music scores, vinyl) and sound piece with vintage penny farthing bicycle

Commissioned by Denver Arts and Venues for McNichols Building grand re-opening exhibit "I've Got a Bike", 2016 

All music samples (in print and in sound) were composed in the decade of the heyday of the penny farthing bicycle. Found sounds (and their waveforms) are incorporated which would have been heard alongside the music of the day- mills, water, horses hooves, and early industrial machines. The "circle of fifths" echoes the large turning wheel of the bike, which is suspended nearly upside-down to resemble a treble clef.
