Francisco Meirino - Anthems For Unsuccessful Winners

SQUAWK BOX 

​

Sound Installation

speakers, audio mixer, computer, audio loop.

​

​

​

A commission from the LUFF/OFF Répression sonore

​

​

October 18th to 22nd 2017 at Chapelle de Tell, Lausanne, Switzerland.

​

​

The Squawk Box was reportedly to be used by 

the British Army in the 1970’s to disperse riots in Northern Ireland. 

​

​

I tried to reconstruct this non-lethal weapon, based on 

the high-volume diffusion of two (very close) high frequencies.

​

​

The installation was running for 6 hours - non stop, 

right in the front of the festival’s main entrance. 

Every day, from 18:00 to 24:00, 

during the 4 days of the LUFF festival, 2017.
