5.1 Surround Audio, 4m 46s

Project Statement (2016)

Ambient sound design created by digitally altering the recordings made from childrens' party favors such as whistles, drums, and bells. The 5.1 surround audio was presented in a near-pitch black room with concrete walls and tall ceilings. The goal was to take something generally considered whimsical and turn it into something darker. The absence of light allowed listeners to focus solely on the audio, relying on their own imaginations to determine where the sounds came from.
