THE UNDERWATER FLYING MACHINE


Ready to explore the depths of inner space? The Underwater Flying Machine will take you on an aural excursion to the bottom of the sea and back. A Jules Verne cockpit /mad scientist's experimental fountain in the guise of a sculpture-instrument, the UFM produces and controls water sounds, both acoustic and sampled. It functions both manually and under the control of its goldfish musicians-in-residence.

This interactive installation is comprised of: the Pipebubble Organ, Funnel Fountains, Lily Pads, Starboard and Port Dribblers, a Bubbler, a Dripper, the Aquawindshield and the control panel. Navigational instruments include Vector, Propulsion, Ballast, a Fathom meter, a steering wheel and gauges for Hydrodecimals Starboard and Port.

The Underwater Flying Machine was shown as a work-in-progress at Lincoln Center's "Day of Homemade Instruments" in 1999, and is currently awaiting a grant or residency to facilitate its completion.
