Gallery Solyanka presents the project “SeedShaker: in anticipation of a favorable environment and suitable time” - a spatial sound installation of the sound artist Sergey Filatov.
Seeds of various plant cultures are placed in spherical transparent shells. Spherical objects with seeds come into oscillation under the influence of vibration created by the built-in eccentric motors. The frequency of vibration is determined by the controller. The sound of each ball is distinguished by timbre and volume due to different filling: sunflower seeds, coffee, beans, nuts, etc.
Sound sculpture SeedShaker forms in space a varying percussion canvas, the transformations of which visitors can observe, moving relative to the sound sources. The peculiarity of the work is a deliberate appeal to the principle of continuous variability characteristic of natural phenomena. Sound installation is designed to reveal the acoustic properties of materials and reorganize the sound in space. The visitor is invited to join the process of developing attention at a more detailed level. Sergey Filatov: “In my approach, I focus on acoustic awareness, I invite you to the area of contemplation of a single sound or sound landscape.”
Sound vibrations are the first signs of the awakening of activity at the source. The installation contains the energy of growth in the period of potential. Every grain, every idea, every personality strives to fulfill its purpose. SeedShaker embodies the stage of development, when not yet manifested power is preparing for its disclosure, concentrating in itself the totality of all available possibilities.

One of the fundamental principles of Sergey Filatov’s creativity is attention to sound as such, an emphasis on its intrinsic value and self-sufficiency. The artist lives with a subtle sense of sound, his surroundings: he feels how various forms of the material world interact with each other, generating sound. Sergey Filatov comprehends much in his creative way empirically, following nature and its laws, considering himself as an integral part of the universe, and the World as a single organism. It is no coincidence that in a number of works the construction of sound sculptures develops into the building of sound architecture (spatial sound installations). As a composer, Sergey Filatov varies and sets the transformations of the sound canvas, based on the natural principles of sound textures: it is based on spontaneity and unpredictability.
