Sounds We Return Are New Again was presented as an evening-length interactive sound installation as part of the House Life Project’s PEOPLE+PROPERTY series on October 17, 2017. This involved a large music box loop whose structure or tone is naturally altered by time and performative gesture in some way.
Throughout the evening event, these sounds built a continually shifting sonic landscape. The music box paper begins blank and its content is 100% community-driven, with new notes being manually added through a whole punch in the music box’s paper loop during the event.
