Wooden Trumpets

 

It was a three months long project with a Scottish master cabinetmaker Alan Marrison, retired after forty years and still producing in the workshop in his backyard. Drawing from the reinterpretation of a pattern found in a page of DIY builders, Candiani and Marrison built a series of wooden trumpets, each of the different shapes and therefore of acoustics. The exploration of the formal and the material, and its immediate translation to sound, renewed the way Mr. Morrison had understood and carried out his profession.
