Chamber Music is an ongoing series of site-specific sound
works made entirely from a single recording of the empty
space in which they are presented. An hour of “silent” room
tone is recorded when no people are in the building; this is
heavily filtered to extract drones derived from the room’s
resonant frequencies. This is the only sonic material used,
and there is minimal electronic processing involved.
Airforms was made in 2013 as a birthday gift for Steve
Roden, who provided two hours of empty room tone
recorded in his bubble-shaped “Airform” house designed
and built by architect Wallace Neff in 1946. The first hour
was used to make the drones, and the second hour to make
the bell-like tones, and the two are here superimposed.
Certain Roden-inspired compositional strategies were
devised to generate indeterminate structures.
“This is literally chamber music – sound artist Steve Peters
records the ambient resonances of empty rooms, which he
then turns into site-specific installations exhibited in the
same locations. The latent acoustic potential of the space
is brought out into a more tangible form. For the most part,
stony sonorities are all that can be heard: long, looming
tones that unfold incredibly slowly...these are broken by
moments of vivid detail: sounds like dropping water, or
the soft report of a sonar, gather and disperse, apparently
randomly – though after a while they almost recall Morse
code.” —The Wire
