Open letter to architects (and other tragic heroes)

It is time to bring the noise in a big way. No more whining. No more complaining. If you are still around – congratulations – you are one of the few left. Now let’s feel those bass cannons.

Inspired by experimental Japanese sound weapons prototyped during World War II, Alberto Tadiello’s E13 000625 (2010) mounts a bass cannon onto the wall of an art gallery, where it greets visitors with an alarming, vibratory blurt. 

Régine Debatty calls it “the sound that hits you in the stomach.”
