Here is a compilation of various installations by Zimoun. Artistically orchestrated effects are created with the usage of dc motors (that resemble little piggies), cotton balls, wires, cardboard boxes and other various materials that produce a cacophony of sounds that convey a reference to nature. These installations are harmoniously executed and the imagery is amazing. It puts us in a trance state of mind just watching this.

Here is what Zimoun represents, quoted by various people.

«Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of curiously collected material, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. Carrying an emotional depth, the acoustic hum of natural phenomena blends effortlessly with electric reverberation in Zimoun’s minimalist constructions.» – bitforms nyc

«Zimoun is best compared to a watchmaker of a self-reproducing time constructing his own gauging station.» – Radjo Monk

«…taking a multiple of small mechanisms, arranging them elegantly with an eye toward minimal affect and maximized geometry. When turned on, each results in a sound work with a varying degree of chance.» – Marc Weidenbaum
