Garden of Memory

On June 21, 2003, I participated in the yearly Chapel of the Chimes Concert, called Garden of Memory and put on by New Music Bay Area. Around 30 composers and performers spread themselves out through the Julia Morgan-designed columbarium and over 1000 visitors walked through to hear the many sounds throughout the building.

Kavita Bali took these pictures of my installation. I hung 8 speakers down from a balcony into a small garden and played 8 different channels of sound through them. The piece consisted on recordings of women working - ranging from baristas to musicians to gardeners to warehouse workers. The piece lasted approx 4 hours.
