Garrett Lynch – RE:soundings (below, best heard on headphones)
Every sound produced during the performance is captured and manipulated live from radio signals. Both location and surrounding architecture dictate reception of signals, their quality and use. The version here is a recording of a view of the stage performance. See an alternative view of the performance here.
