  Work Details  
  Several metres of speaker wire Rotating wave forms is a sound installation which utilises the Doppler effect to create a constantly changing acoustic environment from a single and constant wave form split into four rotating speakers from a single sine tone source. Motor Show Rotating Sound wave, 2001, by Brown sierra (Pia Gambardella and Paddy Collins). The sound apparatus is home made with bits of speakers, motors, and control mechanisms, which grind out a monotonous tone, but there is a second reference to motion in the applied movement of the listener, which would modulate the pitch, a sort of Doppler Effect, as with emergency services sirens approaching or diminishing.
