Asylum

The ASYLUM soundscape will be installed from April 20th-May 11th at the pedestrian/bike passageway under E. Johnson Street along the Yahara river at the mouth of Tenney Park in Madison, Wisconsin. A myk.mak.work, the project comes out of an ongoing collaboration with Megan Katz

The inspiration for the piece is the dramatic sound of rain abruptly stopping and starting again when you drive under a bridge during a rainstorm.  The silence marks the passage under the bridge and back out into the world; it is an auditory experience that draws attention to a brief moment of transition that might otherwise go unnoticed.  In the same way, we use sound to bring attention to the moment of passage through the tunnel at Tenney Park.  Our piece uses abstracted recordings collected from the space combined with snippets of song and the sounds of pouring rain to create a world where the boundaries between real and imagined are no longer clear.

Like many myk.mak projects, the piece is immersive, layered and multi-sensory.  For more information visit mykmakworks.com
