Tontauben is a sound installation consisting of several electronic balls that trail here and there across the floor. Move a ball and create sounds in the gallery space. Move another and a second group of sounds is added to the first. The sonic effects are generated by the position of the balls as they come and go creating an ecosystem wherein you yourself become one of the components.

Tontauben is the first stage of a much larger research and production project entitled Transduction, initiated by Marc Fournel. The presentation of Tontauben at OBORO is the first public event of the Transduction project and the result of an artist residency that began in January 2003 at OBORO’s New Media Lab.
