When Yuri Suzuki first made these White Noise Machines, the purpose of them was to pick up street noise, calculate the quantity and volume of it and to translate that into white noise of an equivalent value. Such an innovative idea might improve the sleep and work quality of people everywhere. This particular installation, however, introduces contraptions that are even more capable. They invite gallery visitors to make their own rackets and listen in for a variety of personal audio translations.

The Garden of Russolo exhibition has graced the Victoria and Albert Museum with a riot of exciting audible effects. The whimsical White Noise Machines transform speech, screams and other voice box creations into a full range of responses that express an unexpected form of art for the ears.
