Reflections in Real Spaces

Inspired by John Lely’s The Harmonics of Real Strings.

Monday, 23rd May 2016. Pops and clicks were played through a speaker into the Hackney Round Chapel. 3 microphones were spaced evenly within the chapel to record the resulting reflections and ambience simultaneously. Crossfading between the three recordings causes a very slow, dolly like, zoom effect – edging toward the speaker while the ambient environmental sounds become more distant, until there are just pops and clicks.
