TITLE: tone, stop. The intersection of two sound lines.
MATERIALS: Electronic music sound installation for enclosed
DIMENSIONS: 5.1 audio; audio loop duration: 60 min
The installation tone, stop. The intersection of two sound
lines. E presented in People Doing Strange Things With Electricity
II is a multi-channel location specific audio installation,
designed with both the space and acoustic considerations of
CoCA taken into account. Seating is not provided in the installation
to encourage visitors to move around so they can experience
how the audio changes based on their location within the space.
My primary artistic focus is on how sound affects and interacts
with space. With tone, stop. The intersection of two sound lines,
E. I deliberately incorporated sound from two sources. The primary
sound source is a soundscape/sculpture that is projected from
the five speakers surrounding visitors. The second source is
the incidental noise present in the rest of the gallery. The
incidental noise meshes with my goal to incorporate a chance
aspect within the work, and more importantly, these secondary
sounds maintain a connection with the community of art present
in the gallery. This space is still part of the larger whole
and cannot be separated from that context, even while visitors
are encouraged to walk inside of and be affected by the space.
