Zimoun: Sound Sculptures & Installations

I caught this video a couple weeks ago and I meant to post it sooner. This is a compilation by a Swiss artist named Zimoun who creates sound sculptures, these tiny devices that when multiplied make these almost zen like sounds. To me there’s something so calming about these random, incessant sounds. They’re almost like listening to the rain or a dryer or a waterfall, but you know, these are sounds made out of motors and fans and other mechanical items.

All in all the video is about 10 and half minutes long, so be sure to hang in there and keep watching the whole thing. I’d also suggest listening to everything in headphones, some of these pieces are barely audible. Also be sure to check out the woodworms eating a piece of wood at 4:52.
