Chambers and Alvin Lucier

November 2011

“A patron listens to the sound of Arctic and New York Bight whales inside a Conch Shell from Bali, submitted by Ann Warde MA ’85 as part of the installation “Chambers: In Honor of Alvin Lucier, sound in large and small resonant environments” (1968). This new version of “Chambers” is a compilation of individual works, each submitted as a tribute to Lucier by his former students. Lucier himself contributed a thimble with audio of the Cologne Hauptbahnhof, a well-known component of his earlier “Chambers.” Ron Kuivila, professor of music, and a former student of Lucier, organized this installation.”    More

The recordings used in the Chambers installation were made by the Bioacoustics Research Program at Cornell University’s Lab of Ornithology.
