TranSound Plaza is my musique concrete, merged-media exhibit that studies the inner-city transit lines of six American cities: Washington DC, Pittsburgh, Boston, New York City, Chicago, and San Francisco. The film montage is presented through three separate projections. Together they make a video montage. The music is originally written by myself and is completely driven by the captured sounds of each transit line. The rhythm of a banging "L" car in Chicago may set a tempo while a squeal of a Boston red-line train may determine a key. I challenge the viewer to critically listen to the compositions behind TranSound Plaza.
