Stained Glass (Chamber Music 5)

2008; CD-R (limited edition, 30 copies); Self-published; out of print. Listen/download (excerpt)

60-minute stereo mix documenting a six-channel site-specific sound installation at the Good Shepherd Center Chapel in Seattle, Washington. All sounds derived from a field recording of the empty Chapel made late at night.

This piece was made to accompany Ashes to Ashes, a visual art show curated by Mary Welch featuring twenty life-size coffins, made from biodegradable materials and suspended from the 28-foot ceiling of the space.

Chamber Music is a series of sound installations derived from recordings of the empty rooms in which the work is exhibited. Luminous resonant frequencies pulled from thin air, sound that aspires to the qualities of light, slowly shifting in tone and intensity with the passing of time.
