My work starts off with a metronome beat which then follows up with a series of sounds made with a wine cup. Meklit Hadero explains that she had a moment where her normal kitchen utensils created an odd sound which inspired her. She referred that moment as a John Cage 4’33 piece. As it was during that silence was she able to discover the sound. The same thing happened to me. I was working on a different sound piece but when I started to make sounds with the cup it became so memorizing that I decided to focus on that. I also drew inspiration from Matmos. A music duo that created a sound using a washing machine. This piece is made entirely from a wine cup.
