room harmonics


an exploration of architecture and acoustics


i use the saxophone as source to generate sounds, and an experimental recording process to reveal the resonant tones of a location.

pitches and harmony relate to spatial relationships, architectural features, volumes or distances.

modulations and tonal variations occur as sound moves around and resonate the physical features of the building.

the sounds you hear are a direct representation of architecture.


by investigating sacred sites and architecture,

i hope to explore how the resonance and the sonic identity of a place could reinforce our experience of the divine.
