Art 345: Artist Instrument

For this project, the Art 345 class had to create a instrument of some kind.  The instrument that I came up with included loose pennies, a baking sheet, and a contact mic.  With the contact mic being included, the pennies scratching and hitting the surface of the pan created a very uncomfortable cacophony.  The pouring of the pennies reminded me of the mindset which is the worthlessness of a particular individual within a collective entity in which to create a larger piece.  The instrument itself can be played in a couple different ways.  The ways that I played the instrument to create a certain variety of sounds, was pouring out of the bottle, sliding the pennies from side to side, and picking up and dropping the pennies from slightly different heights.
