John Phillips "Dietrologia"

Dietrologia, 1998 - A site specific sound installation at the Fleisher Art Memorial, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Four speakers were used in the corners of a lecture room designed by artist Sian Armajani. The room is dedicated to the well-known Philadelphia architect, Louis Kahn. It is a quiet room in the middle of a bustling arts center and I made a piece of mainly muted whisperings and bells, hisses and ticks which were intended to complement the listener's internal dialogue. Two stereo CDs were used. Each section was offset by a few seconds so that the soundscape constantly changed.
