I have been commissioned by BOPA to build a surround sound installation art piece for Artscape 2011. The piece will consist of an 8′ x 8′ x 8′ PVC frame wrapped in art by two very gifted visual artists/designers, Krissy Downing and Mell Wall. Inside the cube, there will be 8 speakers – one in each corner. These speakers will be playing a mix of manipulated field recordings and music. Further, I will be taking full advantage of 8 speakers to create a shifting sonic space that may or may not induce vertigo. (Clearly, inducing vertigo is not the point, as vertigo can lead to nausea which could lead to ruining the exhibit).
The recordings will be available for download sometime in July.
