Audio-Installation "Flutterbies" by Martin Hiller, Detail

► Flutterbies – Audio-Installation for three guitars and electro-mechanical butterflies


„Flutterbies“ is an installation by Martin Hiller for multiple guitars played by electro-mechanical butterflies. The plastic butterflies are attached to flexible wires and set in motion by small electric motors. The butterflies, flutter, bounce, brush, strive & cling randomly over the strings of the guitars. An aleatoric, soothing, decelerated music evolves – constantly altering and meandering.
