Matthew Ostrowski
Spectral City @ NoiseGate
Every city has a chord resonating through it, below our range of hearing. It is the combination of the city’s acoustic signature and life reverberating through architecture. This installation is an exploration of those chords, an attempt to extract the resonances, the pitches that remain, but are usually drowned out by overall levels of noise and activity.

Paul Geluso preparing for Phloq by Suzanne Thorpe

Suzanne Thorpe
Phloq is a fixed media sound piece, written to be performed on a 3D/6 channel speaker system designed by Paul Geluso, The piece conjures the sensation of birds taking flight to inspire an exploration of innate, linked movement among bird life. The piece also references manmade migration and flocking behaviors, which causes its own patterns of interference/noise. @Harvestworks
