Current Harmonics was a 28 channel composition and site specific sound installation for Reservoir electronic arts festival. Located at the Linachtalsperre dam in the black forest, this hydroelectric power station was built between 1922 - 1925 in the industrial region of the black forest, Baden-Würtemberg. I composed a piece in MaxMSP using the frequencies generated by the current harmonics of electricity. The fundamental frequency for Germany being 60 hertz, current harmonics are positive multiples of the fundamental frequency - just like the functioning of harmonics for sound waves!
