Felix’s Machines

Felix’s Machines are music making sculptures. Constructed in his bedroom, they exist to facilitate music by translating rhythmic audio structures into a three-dimensional visual show. Both as musical instruments and kinetic sculptures they invite the audience to share the experience of the creator.

Through exploiting the complexity behind digital music Felix creates a happy medium where the viewer is invited to ‘play’ the accessible sculptures, whilst marveling at their sculptural beauty. A wave of the hand incites sensors to set off a chorus of melodious clicks, whirrs.

As the creator, Felix says
“Although my medium focuses on the development of acoustic sounds, I am continually inspired by electronic music – the countless abstractions act as blueprints for the construction of its acoustic counterparts. I aim to build a space where artificial and dream-like environments can become a reality.”
