Project Description

Music for a Variety of Difficult Situations takes the following physical form: A hospital gurney (c. 1950) sits in a room illuminated by a small lamp. Behind the gurney are 3 speakers which are arranged in a pyramidal configuration and angled in such a way that optimal listening is achieved while lying flat on the clinical platform. Music is played through the speakers using custom eletronics which were designed to perpetually generate sound.

The installation was later shown at Seven Three Split Galley in Chicago.

More details and extensive documentation here, as well as the schematic.

Below are a few clips of the audio from the installation.
