Toast by Phil Gamblen

TOAST is an acoustic sculptural installation commission by the Perth Public Art Foundation.

 

With a physical presence designed to contrast the urban soundscape, TOAST offers the enquirer an ‘orchestra of sound’ through individual micro controller channels.

 

As a sound producing kinetic artwork, TOAST consists of 40 identically hand-made mechanisms, each containing a spoon which repeatedly taps a wine glass producing a series of chinking ‘sounds.’
