Trappist–1

Trappist–1 is composed to activate the acoustic properties of the performance space. We create ringing clouds of sound that resonate with the room. These clouds fade into silences, allowing for the interpenetration of the sonic environment, here the groaning of the barge, the roar of passing helicopters, and the too-familiar coughing of audience members. These sounds are picked up by our microphones and processed by our system, becoming enmeshed in the performance.
