More about Felix Thorn
Felix Thorn modifies musical instruments with addition of mechanical parts so that they make music. These sculptures he calls Felix’s Machines. They exist to facilitate music by translating rhythmic audio structures into a three-dimensional visual show. They function as musical instruments as well as kinetic sculptures. The Machines are a performance device, but can be well suited to act as an art installation, theatre accompaniment, or standalone sculpture.
Felix Thorn was resident artist of Sonica festival, where he exhibited his musical sculpture Armadillo and made a different Felix’s Machine –with a complex mechanical structure he equipped a piano.
