Eddy Currents: Eddy Currents is a mechatronic percussion instrument, named for a shared phenomenon between loops of electrical current and analogous circular motions in rivers. Steel spheres are propelled by electromagnetic forces to create abrupt attacks and granular decays as elements in a spatialized, chaotic composition. Residual energies from the coiled magnets are funneled to create underwater eddies that visually echo and sustain the electrical pulses of the music.

Davy Sumner is an installation artist and experimental musician living in Los Angeles CA. He creates works that stem from the natural world, noise, geometry, and society, utilizing feedback-based systems, custom instruments and electronics, and multichannel audio as compositional elements.
