  Work Details  
  The grid, a modernist remnant, seems something I always return to. In the case of the halogen square (photos taken by R. Yau at the Beyond Music festival, LA) its non-hierarchical openess invites for access and use. The sounds of the environment (includingn the acting audience) are recorded, processed in real time and re-played creating a background to the real sonic happenings. The light on the square changes according to intesity, rhythm and direction of sound. Further versions of this system are intended to use both microphones and camera for recording to facilitate an equal disitribution between sonic and visual information.
