Airbag/14Holes is a hybrid sound sculpture somewhere between a bagpipe, an organ, and a children’s toy. To create sound, it uses abandoned recorder flutes that, following forced musical exploration during adolescence, were never played again.
Through a collecting campaign, a nomadic group of recorders are conscripted into the Linz Recorder Flute Asylum. Airbag/14Holes will provide air to this group of flutes. A heavy, continuous interaction between the flutes produces the emergent sound, like a dysfunctional organ finally finding its voice after a long period of silence.
In his residency at bb15, Lukas De Clerck will use Airbag/14Holes as his instrument by manipulating the air flows, to be performed during the closing exhibition.
The project is part of the Oscillations: Exercises in Resilience project.
