dc.identifier.citationRichards, J. (2014) "Yoke" [music performance/composition, sound object].en
dc.description.abstractYoke explores the themes of physical labour and oppression, affordance, oblique instrumental strategies and the embodiment of electronic sound. The instrument consists of a copper coil wrapped around a tube containing magnets. The performer is tethered to the tube that represents and takes on the appearance of a yoke. Movement is deliberately restricted and ‘playing’ the instrument is only through angling the yoke so the magnets pass through the tube and coil to create electric current for a DIY analogue drum synth. Short analogue percussive sounds are coalesced in to a large-group physical sound performance piece.en
