As part of my Artist Trust Fellowship, I put on a Meet the Artist event at Inscape, the former Immigration Center/Jail where I have a workshop. The Lonely Coast, a group I work closely with, performed in my studio looking down on the prison yard below where the audience was located.
I miked them up and amplified them through a loudspeaker into the enormously long hallway, then picked THAT sound at 50 foot intervals as their voices carried down the length. These 8 mics were then rebroadcasted through 8 discrete handmade loudspeakers surrounding the audience. Other accidental sounds like elevator doors closing, footsteps and the jangling keys mixed with the haunting voices in a super reverb surround sound experience.
