Sound is Well-Reflected
A reflection on space and how we hear the holidays. The listener starts out approaching the Field’s/Macy’s building in full holiday swing then moves into the comparative serenity of the store’s interior. However, the inside silence of the building is only a short welcome break before a return to the chaos on the street. Slowly, the listener is transported from downtown to the interior of a basilica on the North Side for an even deeper silence. But again, the silence is broken, this time by sounds of the outside world coming in. Happy New Year.
