Music School Studio Room
I recorded the ambience of a room in a studio at the Eastman School of Music, but within this ambience, if I might describe every action as they occur, I walked from outside the studio to the door, unlocked it with a key, removed the key, opened the door, walked in, shut the door, and then waited. I waited for a brief moment before opening the door again, exiting the room, shutting the door behind me, and proceeding to turn the recorder off.
Within this recording exists gaps of silence, but the silences are not empty nor devoid of energy. The energy within them exists from the perception of the listener, eagerly awaiting what happens next, and perhaps even if the recording itself was finished! In this way, my recording responds against the notion that silence must be this negative, empty thing, but rather a balance to sound in every possible way.
