P1010434_2

 

This installation/performance involved 40 small and 8 large speakers distributed through the gallery complex (2 galleries, the kitchen, and the WC, hallway and outdoors). The piece was made of of various field recordings, synthetic tracks, and small furtive clicking and chirping sounds from the small speakers spread around the edge of the main gallery space. All the tracks were centrally controlled. Also, live processing using analog synths and other live electronics was incorporated into the work, along with external microphones outside the gallery monitoring outdoor sounds. The overall goal and idea behind this piece was to investigate the boundaries between the natural (the various field recordings and outside microphones) and synthetic sounds which were based on natural processes and simulations.
