Given the fact that we are learning lots about the nature of our Listening Gallery instrument and its surroundings, we decided to anticipate our July 2012 series by implementing, “La Asunción de Remedios”. This new frequency set and hardware adjustments are being conducted using sounds more familiar to wide audiences: the sounds of the electric guitar. Resembling the experience of the continuous Shepard-Risset glissando, the guitar sonorities appear to ascend perpetually like an audible barber’s pole. And, the frequency set that makes up each sonority contains sounds tuned to the acoustical resonance of the site.
Glade(s)capes was commissioned for the Listening Gallery by

John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, by the City of Miami Beach Cultural Affairs Program and Cultural Arts Council, by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and by Miami-Dade County Mayor, the Board of County Commissioners and the Cultural Affairs Department, as well as by Sennheiser, manufacturer of state-of-the-art tools for audio professionals. It is also possible with the generous support of our partner organization Artcenter / South Florida
