Audio Feedback Room, 2016

Processing program, microphone, surround sound speakers

A microphone records continuously in the entrance corridor, capturing audio of viewers prior to them entering the gallery space – a small dark room. The program saves audio recordings in ten minute intervals. Every ten minutes, a new ten minute recording is initialised whilst all of the previous recordings are played simultaneously, through surround sound speakers. If the program has been running for one hour, six ten minute recordings play at once; if it has been running for eight, forty-eight ten minute recordings play at once. The audio therefore builds up over time, creating an aural record of the sound in the entrance corridor.
