DIFFRACTED SYMPHONY

“Diffracted Symphony,” for Dallas Symphony Orchestra and Soluna Festival: large steel sound sculpture with Sebastien Leon and Stephen Fletcher Dewey. Prototyping, multichannel audio system (technical) design, original composition and sound design. Opening May 6, 2018.

This sound sculpture is inspired by the rib cage of a whale washed ashore, with material from Verdi's Requiem re-composed as a funeral mass for the biological state of the world. Excerpts from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s performance of the Requiem are re-imagined and embodied in this 3-ton steel sculpture and musical composition.
