Phloq is a 3D sound installation composed while an Artist in Residence at Harvestworks Digital Media Center, NY, NY. The piece conjures the sensation of birds taking flight to inspire an exploration of innate, linked movement among bird life, comprable choreographed maneuvers of man, the networks that facilitate both, and interruptions and confusions that may arise. To invoke this narrative, composition, technology, environment and listener are enjoined to create a distributed musical interaction that afforded a dyamic perceptual experience. For this work, I collaborated with Paul Geluso, designer of the 3D Sound Object from which the work was diffused. Phloq is produced in part through the Harvestworks Artist in Residence Program. Paul Geluso is a Harvestworks Creativity + Technology = Enterprise fellow, a program funded in part by the Rockefeller Foundation’s New York City Cultural Innovation Fund. The piece was installed June 15 – July 14, 2013 at St. Cornelius Chapel on Governors Island, New York.
