Scapes is a sound installation at the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, MA which augments the physical landscape of the park with a location-sensitive layer of audio.  This audio layer contains a mixture of instrumental music and spoken voices – contributed by participants – both of which are influenced by the participant’s location within the sculpture park.  As such, the participant’s body becomes the primary mode of interaction with this project; as they move through the park, they control how their individual audioscape unfolds by shifting the instrumental music and “running into” audio left by other participants. Museum visitors will use a handheld wireless device and headphones with which they can listen to audio as well as make their own recordings which will be immediately assimilated into the piece for everyone to hear.
