Elerelé is a Sonic art Installation realised by electromagnetic relays which are interacting with MaxMsp programme. The main Idea of creating this project was to verify the repetitive and non-repetitive patterns, how we perceive these patterns as a general sonic texture and finally to verify our recognitions to understand how we identify the receptive and non-repetitive sonic textures? How precise could be our identification?

For building the hardware part (instrument) I used an Arduino as my microprocessor and electromagnetic relays to generate the sonic part. The programming part created to interact with the Arduino to generated the clicks and specific frequencies in RealTime.

The work is an ambient representation of the stunning and diverse Nordic landscapes. Thomsen collected the different sounds, via an open call for sample sounds taken from Nordic countries and arranged them to create this composition. Many of the submissions had links with water in different forms: ice (arctic), running brooks and rivers, boiling (Icelandic geysers), air, vapour, rain, and the sea, which connects all Nordic countries. The piece references current issues such as global warming and is a reflection on the fragile ecology of the coastal regions.
