Pling! sound installation

Pling! is an acoustic representation of a selected area of an island (plocica) in croatia.
A found stone (picked up on the shore) was dropped every 20 centimeters from the same height above sea level. This procedure was repeated until the area was covered completely. The grid of sound samples resulting from the acoustic recordings made during each step of the process served as a positioning map for a motor-operated loudspeaker, which reflected each sound at its respective position.
The terrain ́s topology led to variations in the length of the recordings while acoustic differences were caused by the surface of the ground.
