Caged Pulse Jets is an interactive, kinetic sound sculpture. The caged birds are five spinning pulse jet engines of various sizes that create a range of percussive and droning tones. Through a completely interactive interface, the public can create sound compositions ranging from the symphonic to the cacophonous while they are held captive by the fiery jets spinning by their own thrust.

Well, it's a mixed bag- I thought I was going to be relieved when the project left for the Playa, but found myself feeling a constellation of emotions instead. Mostly sad, as I really wanted to see the Jets up and running and to witness the reaction of the public. It's like rehearsing for a performance for months and months and then your understudy takes the role on opening night. Dave X, BM's fire safety Man, has been in touch with me (yes there is internet for some out there!) and let me know that the crew is doing a great job! He also was kind enough to send along these pictures for now. I am so proud of them, and I hope they are having a blast. In the meantime I will just keep dreaming about what it may be like out there, white-outs and all.
