Lancaster Sound Map, An Exhibition at the City of Lancaster Visitor Center

City of Lancaster Visitor Center | website | Lancaster, false 17603 event website

On view will be photographs taken as the artist walked through our city and county with an audio field recorder, microphone, and camera. The resulting sounds and images were placed in a simple interactive web-based sound map and gallery, and inspired the creation of the album, Born In the Ear.

Listening stations will be set up and the albums will be available for $10 during this weekend only.

Mr. Hyatt is a musician who over the last decade has developed projects that explore community identity through collaborative creative action. His work covers a wide range of media and involves hundreds of unlikely collaborators, yet each project begins with a deep commitment to narrative and place. He is a composer, designer, and public artist who seeks to create memorable, evocative work that follows a rigorous conceptual framework yet presents itself through simple pop and folk aesthetics.
