In this multi-sensory installation, a custom Pure Data program transforms live sound into silent speaker motion by transposing the pitch of ambient sound to sub-audible levels. The resulting movements generate visual and sonic variations through the oscillation of fine ball chains. As the ends of the extensions make contact with the floor they produce an audible and visual interpretation of the sonic field by displacing and redrawing remnants of activity through the gradual erosion of piles of white sand. In this way, the work renders the immateriality of sound as a tangible event by silencing and reinterpreting the data of everyday life.
