Hidden Sine explores self-made instruments and large group performance, and ‘sound curious’ that are concerned with the way of the hand, touch and affordance (action possibilities). Hidden Sine draws loosely on object orientated philosophy and theory of affordances. The premise is that an object may have artistic/sound potential, often hidden, that can be revealed through investigation and praxis. This investigation operates on a number of levels covering sound, plastic arts and actions/theatre. The building of circuits and sound devices is also seen as a method for creating a tabula rasa, and how the idea of delegated performance, where instruments are played by ‘non-experts’, serves to establish a naive approach and authenticity in performance.
