Pe Lang’s poetic and elegant hand built sculptures combine mechanized systems with new materials to mandate and manifest a different approach to kinetic movement. Lang realizes performances and creates installations by ingeniously assembling magnetic, electrical and mechanical devices and even inventing new devices and prototypes. The resulting works are both visually appealing, because of their elegant and minimal kinetic qualities, but also fascinating for their acoustic features. If chance plays an important role in his works, the artist playfully manages to balance between order and chaos by controlling the forces involved in his compositions: the precision of the mechanical devices and the confusion resulted from the collision of the various elements.

Sound artists from Zurich and Bern. Since 2004 ongoing collaboration and installation work. Pe Lang and Zimoun focus on researching sound of materials as well as creating accessible and organic acoustic spaces. Their works “untitled sound objects“ are created by using small machines and robots, in combination with different materials which are used as sound sources. The artists focus on creating acoustic architecture with an organic feel, investigating the properties of sound, materials, resonance and generative systems. The work is presented as sound installations and as audio/visual live performances.
