Rhythmic noises are evolving from sixteen hard drives, which are orchestrated through simple power circuits. By cutting the harddisk’s power in varying sequences and amplifying the peculiar sound characteristics of each drive, an unpredictable acoustic and visual interplay is taking place.

A HardDisko installation uses defective hard disks of various brands and models, which are collected from PC shops, companies and institutions in the exhibition’s local area. The casing is removed from each drive, and a special sound pickup (connected to a sound mixer) is mounted on the drive’s read head.

Visit the HardDisko project page for more information, images, and audio and video clips.
