Porcelain, Speakers, Electronics

Here and There is an outdoor sound installation that features multiple, handmade, tuned porcelain bowls that are sonically activated and suspended from trees to create a spatialized listening experience. The sound of each bowl being struck was initially recorded in a controlled studio environment before being transformed and edited onsite to situate the composition within the larger outdoor soundscape.

At the site, each of the porcelain bowls was attached to a transducer that turned it into a kind of speaker, effectively returning the transformed/recorded sound of each object back to the individual bowl from which it originated. In this way, each sounding object maintains a distinctly embodied, visual presence, while the total work situates an unfolding studio composition into a worldly, natural setting.
