Outline

The Mausoleum I and II is a musical work produced by automated machines, consisting of 12 recorder machines and two voice machines. A big wind box (2m [W] and 4m [H]) is used during the performance. The Mausoleum I is a work for display, while The Mausoleum II is a concert-style performance involving four people. This work questions the relationship between humans and technology and our desires.
