My concern for divergences created by changing aural perspectives did not arise out of wandering around concert halls during musical performances, but from wandering through everyday environments where it is the norm to be moving towards or away from sources of sound.
Sound sculpture is a medium based on environmental models of sound where the essential form is not identified with the physical limits of the sounding body, but with the physical limits of the space being made to sound.
The sense of time is that of a continuum; without apparent beginning, middle or end. The sound is not conceived as a logical structure unfolding In time but as a presence.
'lasting sounds leaving from different places and forming sounding a sculpture which lasts'
