in the cellar

This is a piece titled “Silent Screaming” that I re-engineered for Michel deBroin for the Experience Pommery #9 “la fabrique sonore” exposition in Reims , France. It is an alarm bell that is held in a vacuum underneath a glass dome, and the pump, gauges, and sensors to maintain the vacuum, and turn off the bell when nobody is around. Quite a nice environment to work in — surrounded by literally millions of bottles of aging champagne.

I had the piece completely finished, and then as soon as Michel and I arrived at the winery he completely disassembled it and we proceeded to redesign the enclosure.
