6-channel generative sound installation
Work Description: An immersive sound installation that sonifies air quality data from the local area. Sounds are generated in real-time. Some sounds’ qualities are directly tied to the data–the speed at which virtual crickets “chirp” is determined by temperature, for example (at 0:15 in the excerpt above). While other sounds are more descriptive or evocative, such as breath-like sounds that become more relaxed or labored when particulate matter changes (at 2:44 in the excerpt above).
This work was part of the Tracing Thin Air collaboration with Karen Brummund and Allison Grant supported by the Verdant Fund. Read more about the work.
