Meditation102 installation @ The Yard (Handcock Tower) Boston MA

Shots from my recent installation for Non-Event’s 2018 Showcase @ The Yard (Handcock Tower) Boston, MA

As a meditation on home, this 2 channel installation piece incorporates location recordings made from inside the house. sounds include electronmagnetic recordings from blinking basement lights, water heaters, electronics, transmitted spaces with use of the intercom system, and voice (Alyssa Irizarry)":

“Floating—the tips of my toes grazing the ground. Almost, but not quite. Grounding. Getting to know the slope of crooked floors, the rattle of steamy bones, the smell of each corner. Imprinting on each other—creating new patterns, guided by floorboard grooves.”

Running time: 21.30 minutes.

Jacob Kirkegaard's Labyrinthitis

Released in 2008 by Touch, the composition by Jacob Kirkegaard builds on ideas from Duchamp, Cage, and Lucier. It may even be a nod to the early pyschoacoustic work of Maryanne Amacher

With Labyrinthitis, Kirkegaard used otoacoustic emissions recorded with tiny speakers and microphones to capture the sounds generated by his inner ear.  He then amplified these tones, and created a site-specific installation which produced otoacoustic emissions in the ears of the listeners.

These high frequency tones were looped and played through a series of speakers resembling the structure of the inner ear. The 16 speakers were attached to metal rods of varying lengths to create an ascending spiral hanging from a dome ceiling. The piece was first performed at the Medical Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark.
