 THE SHAFT

“The Shaft” is a sound piece recorded as part of a group on-site audio installation at the H and H Building in Baltimore, Maryland, as part of the 2010 Transmodern Festival. The piece demanded bass.  A PA system was installed at the bottom of a freight elevator shaft; the audience,who were moving around the various warehouse floors as they wished.   All instrument processing was done on analog equipment without the use of computers. The recording process explored the uses of acoustic properties and feedback towards musical ends.

THE HUMAN WISHING WELL

A chain around her waist with a spur on the end– lifts and lowers with each twist.

 The spur sinks and raises from the Metal Wishing Well.

 Amplified treasures within the well are jostled

 The motions form a clattering soundscape and her wish comes true!
