3 Surfaces is a site specific sound and light installation for the main stairwell of the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena. The piece incorporates the unique sounds, natural light, and architectural details of the space as primary materials. The sound piece is formed using field recordings of the space itself, captured during peak activity hours. Using digital filtering and processing, the recordings are transformed into a subtle environmental “tint” to alter how the audience perceives the space.
3 Surfaces is presented here in stereo with some compositional elements added to make it more suitable for home listening.
