The Sound Compass
Dead Tree Spectrum
Sound Art/Installation
The Sound Compass: Reach the center of the installation and turn your head toward any of the pipes. Each pipe is directed at one of the cardinal points. Four recordings were taken with a microphone pointing at one of the cardinal points at different times of the day; the length of each pipe is tuned to the corresponding “keynote” of the soundscape. The rhythm is also derived from an analysis of the sound attacks in the recordings.

Dead Tree Spectrum: Twenty micro-speakers are embedded in a dead tree, determining an analysis in time, space and sound frequency of the tree itself. What if we would cut the tree at different heights and make a resonant pipe out of it? The distance of each speaker from the root determines the frequency it will emit. Altogether, the 20 speakers create a virtual, ever-changing—and at the same time, static—spectrum derived from an incidental, yet very concrete, physical feature.
