filtered B-field VLF recordings with loop antenna, outside
Eyebeam on West 21st Street. most of what you hear is 60-cycle
that's so strong it won't filter out; on occasion, in vlfeye2
and 4 for example, other signals seem to come through.

VLF is always mysterious, nothing more so than B-field!

we're all being magnetized, hopefully irregularly!



Full bandwidth version of crystal radiodetuning and resonance
in the Eyebeam window gallery installation going down tomorrow -
always fascinated by the sounds; in this case, you're hearing
pretty much what the piece sounded like from the storage room
behind the window. recorded with Zoom H2.


i did hear that:
i appear ravaged.
this must stop.
i know i will be murdered.
my work is sound, its fury.
what is visible has been killed.
i am dead from them.
i am dead to them.
therefore i appear ravaged.

Silent Project used multiple audio transmission technologies to broadcast music to individuals rather than to a group. Each participant heard a simultaneous broadcast of music, similar to what he or she would experience as a concert-goer, but this experience was internalized and isolated through entirely private audio devices. As a result, visitors who are not participating in the technology experienced the performance only as audience members.
