Rhythmanalysis: Atmosphere of Taos, NM



Julian Mock and I were invited to Taos, NM to create a sound collage for the inaugural Paseo Festival. Over the courseof several days, Julian and I recorded samples from the local soundscape with some help from ten local school kids aged 8 to 14. On September 26th, the day of the opening, we installed a "listening station" marked by strings of sonic fabric flags beneath an overhang near the Taos Center for the Arts. That evening, hundreds of passers-by stopped to listen and discuss the sonic fabric of Taos.

The 11-minute sound collage is available for listening above (or here).
