Audio Chandelier : Latitude

Performances / Créations


Individual grains of nearly static sound dispersed to 32 speakers throughout a gallery and altered as granular synthesis illuminates and refracts moments in time. In each of this set of pieces, field recordings and audio samples are processed as one “grain” is sent to each speaker available.

By manipulating the grains of sound (which remain static in each speaker) a surprising array of sounds and environments are created — from shimmering motion to reverberant spaces, to low crashing waves, to hyper-electronics refraction of sound. The pieces have been presented as multi-channel fixed media, an interactive performance piece, and as a laptop orchestra piece (with an upcoming version for smartphones)
