ECO(SOUND)SYSTEM: Suite 1: The Seed is a 30 minute mixtape weaving together field recordings, music, poetry and LP samples. Elements of musique concrete and sound collage are employed to explore urban sound ecology and and the human relationship with nature & technology. Eco(sound)system is part of a larger interactive art installation which made its debut on April 20, 2013 at Wollman Hall as part of the 2013 Megapolis Audio Festival. The installation explores our urban ecology through a polyphony of senses. Visitors engage with listening stations, sound objects, microscopes, photographs, collages and found objects woven together into an ecosystem of its own, The project focuses on some of the sounds, sights and symbols which help to define our urban environment and the human relationship with nature & technology.
