Stria Variations explores the acoustic phenomena of spatial apparitions through the form of a multi speaker sound installation. Using the recordings and source code of John Chowning's 1977 piece Stria as a starting point to generate dense micropolyphonic masses of sound, this installation investigates the perceptual possibilities of the speaker array as an instrument.
The work was developed as part of a residency at Bristol's Arnolfini Gallery in May 2014.
