share08, OWL PROJECT (UK), “sound lathe workshop”

to lathe sound? what a curious idea, but after we have talked to the sympathetic guys named: “OWL PROJECT”, it finally made sense.

A carpenter’s workshop transforms the sounds of working wood (cutting, sawing, and fixing together) into genuine small objects with the help of a “sound lathe”. This machine records audio data coming from real hand-working processes and mixes them with the dust, sawdust and sounds of the workshop to produce unique, one-off, often flawed objects that become a sort of material souvenir of how we construct furniture.

watch the video to see how exiting it is to make sound with such an simple thing as wood and a carving knife.
