"circadia" is a multi-channel installation that explores how synchronization may emerge amidst various independent bodies. Glass jars with embedded speakers are distributed throughout the room and act as separate bodies. Each vessel produces sounds generated via quiet feedback. In this way, the space and the subtle acoustical effects the audience has on that space create shifting, delicate balances between sustained sounds and small discrete pulses.
