WORK > Chôros (dance) multimedia installation

This piece incorporates chance-based aleatoric methodology into the creative process. Chõros relies on participants to activate the sound in the exhibition. This piece is comprised of sound harvested from the streets of the city. Chõros is a phenomenological soundscape made up of sounds deeply associated with experiences of every day life.

By stripping sound down to its bare essentials and presenting sound in its most basic, abstract form, Chõros renders these sounds as indistinguishable. The content in this piece is composed of sounds that a teacher would be familiar with, a chef, or perhaps a taxi driver. In removing associations to the original source, the project recycles sound through a rethinking of the way we use public space.
