Steve Parker's interactive sound installations are, in all probability, unlike anything you have ever seen before. Described by Design Milk as "circuit boards of sounds," these pieces include parts of instruments that are responsive to touch. One needs to wear the headphones that are provided at the exhibition site and lightly touch the metal. This action will set off "a variety of recorded sounds — from the high-pitched rhythmic beat of Morse Code to a symphonic escalation."
In addition, Steve Parker ties his interactive sound installations to gloomy events from history. For example, the 'Ghost Box,' which is a sculpture he completed in 2018, references a "schematic drawing of a WWII-era radio."
