‘garden of russolo’ is an interactive white noise machine by japanese designer yuri suzuki, which allows visitors to have a sonic experience using their own voice. the auditory installation, shown at the V&A during the 2013 london design festival, is based on suzuki’s previous series of sound-activated work ‘white noise machines’. influenced by futurist painter and composer luigi russolo – one of the first experimental composers – the series of phonograph-like wooden boxes compose the exhibition, re-interpreting audio input into a muffled atmospheric output, twisting and amplifying the original soundtracks.
