Light + Labyrinth

SIGHT Specific audio  |  2016

This project is loosely modeled after the idea of a sculpture garden. Through historical or ecological research as well as careful observation of the experience of specific sites, Earley produces sound pieces that become part of the locations for which they are made. The Light + Labyrinth gardens are magical in that they are invisible until listened to. By diving in and out of the sound pieces through walking from site to site, the listener has the chance to participate in β€œear cleaning,” an activity of purposeful listening that enhances the perception of the amount of sound through which they move.
