Prepared Chamber. This chamber is a home-made acoustic instrument prepared by Anton Mobin and composed with a large box in wood, upgraded with several springs and others metallic found objects selected for their capacity to create melody. The box is divided into three parts among which each is covered with a different surface (a wood, a metal and a plastic one). Three different contact-microphones are placed in suspension under these surfaces: bass contact for the wood, medium contact for the metal and high contact for the plastic surface. Deliberate accidents produced in the Prepared Chamber create a micro universe which I dread in an intuitive way to resound as the pling plong music. Prepared chamber & Objects manipulated by Anton Mobin in an acoustic mode with effects application and treatments in real time by Ian Linter. Each of the 3 microphones were plugged and recorded in a separated track with different processing and equalization on each of them.
