‘Furniture Music’

Sound Design

Yuri Suzuki's ‘Furniture Music’ exhibition at the Lighthouse, Glasgow.

Yuri Suzuki's solo exhibition ‘Furniture Music’ was on show this Autumn at the Lighthouse Glasgow as part of Cryptic’s Sonica Biennale. ‘Furniture Music’ attempts to re-design the domestic soundscape and proposes ways for sound not simply to be noise, but rather to help enhance harmony and comfort within one’s surrounding environment.

‘Furniture Music’ comprises of two main bodies of work: an immersive installation titled ‘Sound of the Waves’ (2018); and a series of appliances and furniture pieces conceived for the kitchen/living areas of the home which include, amongst others, ‘Musical Kettle’ (2017), and ‘Singing Washing Machine’ (2018), developed in conversation with composer Matthew Herbert.
