An artist working with electronics and electronic media, based in Brooklyn, NY

Fruiting Bodies of High-Voltage Transmission Lines (2010)

Dimensions: Scalable 6′ x 13′ | Medium: Sound, Custom Electronics, Salvaged Speakers

8 speakers produce 8 approximate sine tones, independently fading in and out at slow but regular rates. Silence is broken by a single tone slowly growing louder. That tone is joined by others forming a chord. This chord morphs into a tonal cluster, a sonority active with overlapping beat frequencies, melting away into a suspenseful chord and then swelling again, evolving into subtle but unique sonorities, occasionally returning to silence.
