Created for Sonic Arcade: Shaping Space with Sound by invitation of Radius
Exhibition run: Sep 14, 2017 – Feb 25, 2018

Project Description
Hearsay collected sound from two live mics placed along the corridor, processing this live material via a series of delay algorithms to produce various effects. The processed sounds are then rebroadcast via overhead speakers back into the environment creating a subtle disruption in how the space is perceived and a subversion of the ‘live’. Inspired by William Burroughs’ thoughts on time binding, viruses and displaced speech in The Electronic Revolution.(pdf) Hearsay and the companion video work Siege, were created as site-responsive artworks in the two-block-long underground passageway servicing the 59th St. Columbus Circle MTA station in New York City.
