about

Two site-specific Visible Cloaks installations, previously unreleased and now available digitally.

“Gallery 211” (for virtual ensemble) composed for temporarily installation in Gallery 211 of the European wing at the Art Institute of Chicago, February 2019. The piece is focused specifically on Francesco Mochi’s bust of (what is thought to be) St. John the Baptist. www.artic.edu/artworks/73413/bust-of-a-youth-saint-john-the-baptist

“Stedman's Senary” composed for circular 6 speaker array spread across the entire distance of Cathedral Park in Portland, Oregon, August 20th 2016. Aspects of the arrangement are inspired by English handbell ringing traditions - or "change ringing" - as originated by campanologist Fabian Stedman in the mid-1600s. Within the work, fixed FM synthesis tones are used to emulate bell resonance along with an arrangement for voice, pressure valve air and Armenian duduk animated within the 6 channel field using ambisonic panning, intended to mix with the natural soundscape of the park and surrounding anthropophony from the St. John's bridge overhead. Presented here as a 2 channel mixdown approximating the 6-point diffusion within the width of the stereo field ( for full multichannel version, see here: twitter.com/visiblecloaks/status/1241203524345585664 )
