Brane

"While using a vacuum cleaner in my bathroom, the proximity of the suction nozzle to the shower curtain caused a portion of the curtain to be drawn tightly over the nozzle opening causing a seal which resulted in a deep grumbling sound. This inspired me to experiment with tightly stretched foils."

Each Brane consists of a membrane, which is vibrated bij an air stream moving over a circular mounting. Brane's acoustic color and pitch level is determined by the sounds occurring at the end of a tube. Schläger bundled sixteen Branes and mounted them - similar to Kulong and Typedrum - on a ring at a height of 3.40 meters.
