Spaced Out -- Last weekend I checked out David Byrne's Playing the Building installation. Using an old organ as a controller, visitors can "play" an old warehouse. Different keys activate blowers and hammers around the space. Standing in the middle of the room you can hear the sounds move around you as people play on the organ.

Today's piece was inspired by that listening experience. Using slivers of a field recording by Bram at the Freesound Project I created a similar experience of sounds moving around the listener. The effect is heightened by listening with headphones. Enjoy.
