Surface Design Show 2024

Bodhrán - Drumming

Joseph Clinton Stand: NTF6

The use of tone woods and large chambers allow Bodhrán to project sounds. The track played is a multi-layer loop derived entirely from the piece, with no modulation, amplification or adjustments made.

Bodhrán adopts visual languages of musical instruments to indicate its interactive quality - direct audio feedback from physical touch. The seat was created through use of traditional furniture and instrument making techniques, to form hollow resonant chambers of varying pitches and tones across the seat’s construction, with the large, tapered seat body and tubular backrest each having their own set of acoustic output. Supports and hardware are milled and bent from mild steel to isolate these chambers in a manner reminiscent of a large floor tom drum.
