  Work Details  
  Haunted house was a 12 hour long performance/installation where I filled the house with sound. Sounds from the neighbourhood, but also from far away - filling the house with spirits as if it was an exorcism in reverse. Downstairs I used a surround-sound system to mix sounds from outside - of the city and of nature. Upstairs, every room had its own loudspeaker from which issued domestic sounds like cooking, showering, toilet, reading the paper, footsteps, voices, etc. etc.
