One Room

One Room is a site specific sound installation created for the RISD: Locally Madeexhibition curated by Jori Ketten. By tapping the cedar slats of the exhibition space's walls, the room becomes a microtonal marimba. Museum-goers were invited to play the room, one note at a time. The sounds, captured by a system of feedback delays, evolve over the course of the hour into a rhythmic cloud. A single string is stretched from each mallet hit point, in the order they were played, creating a map for tracing the sequence.
