Dental Metal

Designer | Artist Martin Bricelj Baraga
Year 2015

Dental Metal is Martin Bricelj Baraga’s new collaboration with London based producer Matt Spendlove – Spatial that uses simple objects such as dental brushes and piezo mics to create a monumental homage to the dark ambient music.

Toothbrushes create a rhythmical composition mimicking guitar riffs and the installation is amplified with Marshall stacks. It creates a unique sound sculpture. The live event consists of performative action with additional sound inputs.

Dental Metal exists both as generative installation work and as a performance. Installation uses the object and 4.1 surround sound system and is using generative sound design.

Performance uses the installation object as the main instrument with added real time manipulation by Spatial accompanied with live instruments and tools by Baraga.
