BETWEEN NOW & THEN

The multi-channel sound installation piece “Between Now and Then”, played through nearly one thousand aluminum pipes, proposes a new experience of time by infiltrating the intrinsic sounds of timepieces and by rearranging ambient recordings from the Vallée de Joux, the craddle of fine watchmaking located in Switzerland.

Watch ticking becomes beats, cow bells turn into zen gongs, and stretched church organ samples mutate into meditative sound waves, all giving a glimpse into the elastic dimension of time.
