Cyclotone II

‘The structure of the system consists of rigid rods and rapidly rotating flywheels mounted on rods….By gyrostatic action, the machine is transparent to successive intervals of time….The machine’s immobility in time is directly proportional to the rate of rotation of its gyrostats in space’ – How to Construct a Time Machine, Alfred Jarry

Cyclotone II

For the past two to three years Cyclotone has been my most requested audio-visual performance piece. In early 2015 I began work on a new version, refining the existing work with the explicit aim of trying to make the finale more intense. Cyclotone II has greater visual complexity then its predecessor and while the finale fixates upon fast moving geometric concentric mechanisms, the early sections take on an evolving meditative flavour. Cyclotone II was premièred a LEV Festival in Gijon and subsequently performed at Elektra Festival in Montreal, in 2015.
