GROUP is a collective sound work that starts on individual mobile devices and ends with participants coming together for a large-scale gathering at a designated location. Anyone with an iPhone or iPod Touch can download the GROUP app from the Apple App Store and be a part of this experience. The piece begins with a dense drone that sheds layers throughout the day and then transforms into a monumental sound as hundreds of participants come together with their sounding devices to activate the meeting area. Group is a collaborative project between Aaron Siegel and Larry Legend.
The first performance of GROUP took place on June 21, 2011 at the designated meeting place of Wall Street and Broad Street in downtown Manhattan, right in front of the New York Stock Exchange.
A new version of the application needs to be created for each individual event, so if you are interested in staging a performance of GROUP please contact either Aaron or Larry at soundofgroup.com.
