Audio:
Composition using sounds recorded during the process of photographing the residency site before construction of the scaffolding.

Diagram:
The structure of the composition follows a rough arc, but not a symmetrical one. The piece builds gradually, peaking slightly after the midway point as successive layers of sound are added, then dropping off to create a sloping cliff on the far side of the arc.

The design residency will center around the space shown here, including the construction and manipulation of a physical scaffolding. The scaffolding will act as a three-dimensional diagram and serve as a point of contact for various sonic, visual, and conceptual explorations.
