12 Meter Power Chord, an installation/performance by Derek Holzer for 
STYX Project Space Berlin

Sound is a physical phenomenon. Three strings resonate at intervals to
each other and activate the architecture they remain tensed across. But
sound is also a cultural phenomenon. Three strings tuned at specific
mathematical ratios create the infamous power chord--the signature sound
of heavy metal guitar. "12 Meter Power Chord" walks the tightrope
between the phenomenological and intellectual aspects of sound and space
by sonifying the intervals found in the architectural space of the
gallery using piano wire.

"12 Meter Power Chord" runs as an acoustic installation from 7-28
November 2008, with amplified live performances for the opening and
finissage, 7 & 28 November, 19:00-22:00.

Other artists showing are SIX, with his "Pervateen" photo series, and
Sue de Beer with stills from her "Hans und Grete" video.
