his piece was recorded live at Phil Niblock's Experimental Intermedia Foundation in New york in the spring of 2005 and is part of Andre's ongoing series focused on creating micro-environments, computer controlled hermetic spaces. Bringing together sound and space through sympathetic vibrations, sound is used as a medium to excite space in order to render audible its natural resonances - sound multiplying in and by space. Six objects were suspended from the ceiling at different heights, each one made from a globe of white glass with one microphone, one speaker and one electrical lamp inside. Each speaker was connected individually to a computer, that triggered 6 different frequencies - one for each of the speakers. These frequencies were tuned to the objects' resonance frequencies causing them to resonate. There was no amplification for the sound coming from the objects. Kenneth Kirschner was plugged into the room's sound system.
