Listen (condensed, 11:19)
A bell was hung inside a tower located near the main entrance to the Art Institute. When rung by a visitor, it triggers a recording of the bell that fades in imperceptibly as the real sound decays, creating the illusion of an endless tone. The sound changes subtly over 22 minutes, gradually mixing in layers of pitch-shifted bell tones that finally evaporate into silence. A remixed version is on the Three Rooms CD.
