  • ROUND
    an individualized audio experience From the exhibition brochure Today information gathering involves gaining perspective from a diverse array of sources all available at our fingertips Searching for a simple product online individuals can read reviews not only from expert sources but from the product users themselves and subsequently add their own feedback Content is no longer something created and maintained by a single authoritative entity Instead the public is accustomed to content that is available participatory and ultimately democratic in nature Wikis blogs and sites like YouTube seek to involve browsers in an ongoing process of creation and collaboration that constantly changes the landscape of the Web Why should experiencing art be any different ROUND probes this question by using networking and streaming audio technologies to create a hybrid of the traditional museum audio tour and a participatory blog ROUND is an audio installation that seeks spoken voice contributions from museum visitors and uses them as part of an evolving musical composition intended to be listened to while viewing the work in the galleries This interactive audio experience allows visitors to select from a diverse range of voices sharing their perspectives about the exhibitions including artists curators educators and visitors and to add their own responses to the mix Just as a dialogue about a work of art is forever unfolding the flow of music changes continually as a result of being created using custom compositional algorithms The title ROUND alludes to both a musical round a song in which two or more voices sing the same melody but in an offset fashion and the age old Arthurian legend about the Knights of Camelot who sat at a round table affording no one person a privileged position Equality of opinion and the opportunity for two way dialogue are core ideas

  • One Hundred and Four Thousand
    Thousand is a site specific composition intended to honor both the living and the dead history and the present I wanted to explore the cemetery s contemplative nature as well as the relationships that various cemetery dwellers have to their surroundings My intent was to create music that evokes my own personal feelings about spending time within the borders of Forest Hills through the words and voices of other cemetery dwellers Over the course of several months in early spring 2006 I interviewed 26 people in the cemetery both visitors and employees I used these recorded interviews in tandem with traditional instruments to compose the piece For listeners the music and voices will mix with the ambient sounds smells and sights they encounter as they make their way through the cemetery on paths of their choosing We performed the piece live in Forsyth Chapel at Forest Hills at the end of the exhibit Performance Excerpts Performed at Forsythe Chapel at Forest Hills Cemetery Jamaica Plain MA Video footage and editing by Rob Cheyne Performers Peter Bailey guitar and electronics Halsey Burgund live electronics samplers and mallet percussion Bekka Shellenberg violin Javier Caballero cello Bennett Miller double bass Michael O Connor
