“Whispering Rain” is an audio installation that displays a sonic, geographic dream. Three different terrains are represented by three separate field recordings, each played through a directional speaker. These are carefully placed in close enough proximity to each other (on the ceiling) for spectators to experience each terrain only a footstep or two from each other. This installation is presented in a darkened room with only a small and brightly lit, hand drawn map to represent this otherworldly topography.

Presented at NAISA’s Soundplay 2014.
