composition and installation exhibited:

camac, france, april 2011

east pop west, london, september 2011

in the landscape near nogent-sur-seine, the presence of the nuclear power station is mesmerizing and menacing.  repeated attempts to capture audio recordings were stopped by security. the final recording was made using a parabolic dish.  it was synchronized to the rhythm of breath.

the piece was originally exhibited as an installation on the grounds of camac in an outdoor garden shed.

recently it has been re-located and re-worked site specifically for east pop west, london where the sound was installed inside the drawers of 3 disused filing cabinets. 

each of the filing cabinets contains a variation of the same recording set to e, d, or f.  visitors are welcome to open and close the draws switching between the different pitches and between both channels of each stereo recording.
