Through summersultryings is an installation that displays a 5-channel recording of the summer dusk in a Virginia forest. The recordings were made with five simultaneous microphones in a pentagonal formation, at a distance of ~30 meters between each mic, at Walnut Creek Park. The installation recreates the forest's spatial distribution of it's sound masses by setting five speakers in the same order in which the microphones were originally placed. Each speaker projects the sound of its corresponding microphone. This creates an expanded listening field resulting from the different microphone responses and placings. By interacting with the space, the audience experiences various versions of the sonic reality. This video presents five fragments of the recording, each fragment featuring a specific microphone. For a full 5.1 simultaneous listening of the recording, the contact is firstname.lastname@example.org
Installation location: University of Virginia, The Lawn.
