LED lights, bolts, computer fans, glass bowls, tin, bamboo, aluminum pipe, metal rulers, tripods, cable.

Long wire cable drops and flexible metal strips mounted on tripod stands have appeared in Manning’s experimental live sound performances. In this gallery interpretation, wire drops are mounted with small computer fans providing movement to LED lights that drag along the floor, hit up against and randomly activate the objects on the ground. Occasionally, the lights trace the perimeter of objects on the floor. From glass fish bowl to bamboo sections, as contact is made and the sound amplified, the capacities of each material as a resonating chamber is revealed.
