Surrounding is a site-specific sound performance created for the Hamon Observation Tower at the de Young in San Francisco by sound artist Yann Novak. The performance will incorporated field recordings captured throughout Golden Gate Park and synthesized sounds created to situate themselves within the field recordings.  Surrounding is intended to echo the symbiotic relationship between the architecture of the de Young and Golden Gate Park while created a deep and meditative listening environment to compliment the panoramic views of the Hamon Observation Tower.
