Lapse: Leave: Linger @ Silent Barn, Brooklyn

Lapse: Leave: Linger is a site-specific multichannel sound installation placed in spaces of temporary, transitory activity. Combining the effect of movement and distance, sounds emitted in this installation will travel around the inside perimeter, reacting to the unique nuances of a location or venue.

The multichannel speaker array will be composed on-site, which sonically complements the architecture of the space. Sound sources filling the space will consist of tones and samples from Chavez’s vinyl library which are individually chosen specifically for each site. Listeners traveling through the installation have the opportunity to find their own vantage point as sounds travel around them.

By providing a sonic link between individuals and their surroundings, Lapse: Leave: Linger aims to create a aural dialogue between different spaces and individual perspective.
