Near the limits of audible sound are vague acoustic territories on the fringe of human hearing. These sonic spaces are teeming with environmental and increasingly with urban sounds that lie just beyond human perception.
This multi-sensory installation offers people the experience of physically engaging with their sonic environment. In this installation, a Pure Data program transforms live sound into speaker motion by altering pitch and reverberation.
Sound Garden engages the viewer/participant in the familiar extended mediation device of audio amplification through the use of microphones and multiple speaker arrays. The participants and observers, however, discover that their interactions transform the invisible motion of sound into visible form.
