About Sherk’s SonanceZOELLNER project:
Humming computers. A droning HVAC system. The murmur of voices in a crowded lobby. These often unnoticed sounds create a sonic landscape that provides raw material for sound sculptor Scott Sherk. By chopping, compressing, and recombining recordings of these ambient sounds, Sherk constructs sonic forms that heighten the listener’s experience of space. His installation SonanceZOELLNER, incorporates light, speakers, interactive monitors, and the natural resonance of the building to transform the Zoellner Arts Center into a sculptural sound environment. Presented in conjunction with the departments of Theater (Theater/Design 30), Art/Architecture/Design (Sculpture I, Product Design II), and Zoellner Arts Center.
