Tinguely's Méta-Harmonie Guest No.1: Zimoun


Zimoun was born in Switzerland in 1977 and lives and works in Bern. His works are best categorised as installations and sound art, often motorised to make them move and physically generate sounds. His intricate, mechanically coordinated works fascinate on account of their poetic playfulness. They are at once simple and complex, a result of both repetition and variation, routine and chance. For the show at the Museum Tinguely he creates an 11-metre-long minimalist-looking, filigree wall sculpture 275 prepared dc-motors, filler wire 1.0mm, 2009 / 2010 consisting of 275 motors, with as many filler wires attached to them. The wires are made to rotate and dance so that they hit both each other and the wall, generating a monotonous, meditative backdrop of sound.

Tinguely's Méta-Harmonie Guest No.2: 4 Orchestrions from the early 20th Century


Long before the age of gramophones, radios and jukeboxes, restaurants and dance halls had music automata with which to provide music on demand. These could be fitted with a wide range of instruments, in most cases starting with a piano followed by percussion instruments such as drums, cymbals and even strings and brass as a stand-in for a small to medium-sized ensemble of live musicians. Called Orchestrions, these mechanical orchestras, which played automatically without human intervention, initially worked with pinned cylinders, later with music rolls made of paper or card programmed to play various pieces. After the First World War, the scoring was adapted to the modern taste for jazz, which led to the inclusion of saxophones and accordions.
