Tim Shaw - Tresor Linz - recorded on March 08 2022
Points of Failure is an ongoing series of concerts and installations where Shaw works with miscellaneous objects and repurposed audio equipment to create an audiovisual performance-environment. By using DIY electronics, found objects, light and sound making circuits, Shaw experiments live with the musical potential of everyday materials, in response to the architectural features of the performance space. By making and undoing objects, building hybrid mechanisms to make noise, deploying a disordered multi-sensory experience, a hypotonic environment is created in which sound, light, smoke, smell and movement are intertwined. Points of Failure environments have previously involved horn speakers, light bulbs, popping candy, tesla coils, air horns, spark gaps, satellite dishes, smoke pellets, car horns, water drips, hydrophones, bass shakers, bells, modular synthesisers, self made stringed instruments, balloons, transducers, speaker cones, rain, fans, solenoids, contact microphones, DIY circuitry and motors.

Tim Shaw is an artist working with sound, light and communication media.
