When visting the collider 4 show in our gallery, one piece which really drew my attention was the Versus (vs.) Series, VS:: 0.01(eight ball). This pool table sonically interprets movement of the billiard balls while two players are facing off. I found it very interesting that the music slows as the pace of the balls rolling across the table decreases as well as how the pitch differs depending on the location. For example, when rolling from the left end the pitch decreases, and rolling from the right it increases. I think the addition of these sounds makes the players more attentive to the action occurring on the table. When reading the information about this particular installation, I noticed the description said this is the first in a series of projects dealing with sonically interpreted sports events, so I’m very interested to see what the other installations will be.
