This piece first existed as a week-long site-specific 8.1-channel audio environment at the MIT Green Building in 2017. A meditation on grounding, a mapping of architectural atmospheres, and an inquiry into the history of RADAR at MIT, the installation captured audio recordings roof’s weather station and transmitted them to the 1st floor loggia in real-time. Additional sounds were recorded throughout the building. Click here to learn more about the installation.

Reworked, the audio on ESOW aims to bring attention to and seek to disrupt the ambience of every day brought about by constant information flows, automation, sensors, and energy systems.

A version of this work  was presented live at the Goethe Institut in Boston (2017). A CD release event occured at Industry Lab in Cambridge, MA (2020).

This project was supported in part by a grant from Cambridge Arts, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
