I accompanied Bill Will’s exhibition of kinetic sculptures Fun House with a four-channel generative sound installation.  An extensive library of individual sound events were randomly triggered and spatialized throughout the gallery in ever-changing combinations and layers.  Sound events ranged in length from a few seconds to several minutes and were derived from the sound of a single snare drum hit – from quiet buzzing and drones to rumbles and pops.  Sudden bursts of sound emerged from silences.  As visitors activated the noisy sculptures, the installation provided a parallel sonic environment.
