Through a canopy of 100 gourd speakers, form and vibration combine to create a unique sensory experience of enveloping sound and otherworldly song.
Entwining the natural resonance of gourds with multi-channel electro-ambient music, this sound sculpture fuses organic vessels and technology in an extraordinary way. A dynamically changing sound score has been created from the acoustic samples of the gourds as well as electronic music that utilizes their reverberant characteristics. Additionally, live input is collected from gallery visitors and embedded in the sound score. The installation is intended to travel from gallery to gallery, collect sounds from different environments and accumulate a collective memory of sound.
Gallery Hours: Sat. and Sun. 1:00-4:00 p.m. or by appointment.
