The Swiss artist Zimoun is currently exhibiting his latest installation at the Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida (USA), which runs until January 08 2012. Zimoun, previously featured on Minimalissimo, builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound using simple and functional components, which result in unique and quite beautiful soundscapes.

The Sculpting Sound installation, curated by Matthew McLendon is an example of structural simplicity in an industrial-like setting, which reveals an intricate relationship between the artificial and the organic. Zimoun’s creations often use multiples of the same prepared mechanical elements to examine the creation and degeneration of patterns.

If I was in the vicinity, this would be a must-see. Fantastic.

  1. I like the contrast between the industrial setting and the nature-like sounds (the isolated wire ‘rain’ was my favorite, I think). Would be awesome to see it live!

    I saw Soun at the Ringling Museum and I was amazed at the way it was displayed, just the single bulb in the middle made the shadows almost a tangible thing, and I loved the contrast of the white walls with the boxes, everything was so simple yet very complex. I loved it.
