In hopes of providing Milan design week visitors with a moment of peace, Yuri Suzuki has designed an immersive installation in the form of 30 swinging pendulums playing calming noises.
Set against the backdrop of an old Milanese seminary, Suzuki’s Sonic Pendulum installation is made up of three structures supporting 30 pendulums.
Each pendulum is equipped with a speaker playing a calming ambient bassline, while artificial intelligence modulates sounds that are being made in the space – creating an “ever-evolving, meditative calming atmosphere”.
“Whilst continuously generating a calming ambient sound and bassline atmosphere, the algorithm processes disturbances around the space, generated by the crowd themselves,” said the designer, who worked alongside car brand Audi to realise the installation.
