Peace and Harmony (2003)


An installation for Christmas. Four different carols are deconstructed and played through multiple locations. Listeners percieve different carols depending on position.

The best executed of 2003’s installations, “Peace and Harmony” is one of my favorite pieces. I reused the position-dependent experience idea from “Sympatico”, but used harmonious familiar melodies rather than composing around embedded tunes. This was also the only installation to remain active throughout its intended run.
