Borgel-Tron, installation 2007

An generative sound installation built of adopted electronic organs.
The organs of Borgel-Tron were offered for free on eBay in Holland, they still worked perfectly when picked up from people in the neighborhood of Groningen. A documentary about the people who traded their organs for a home baked apple pie is part of the installation.

These Organs are able to sense and kick a ball; after they kicked the ball to another organ they play a predefined chord for a few seconds. Because the ball follows an undefined path it is a random and endless composition.
