The sound board and spouts of wire extending from it are picked up with high sensitivity and run through effects intended to reflect the visual aspect of the whole. Every sprig of string has a unique sound and the Garden can be played as a percussion piece or soundscape generator. There is as much musical potential as there is a potential for strange sounds. The original sounds run through a very digital delay that can be as tight as possible or extended to about 1 1/2 seconds. The feedback can be adjusted to generate long perfect extensions of tiny sounds to become waves then captured in long format if desired.
The piece shown here is actually the third Garden.
