Sound Structure

A pair of speakers submerged beneath earth functions as the mediated sound source for an exhibition and live performance. Hi-jacking the underground sewage pipes as a PA system, the room's infrastructure disperses frequencies throughout the space from below the listeners. Speculative geological listenings occur which use the ground itself—built and unbuilt—as the sound medium for signal transmission.

Geological Listening served as the PA system for the Future Soundscapes performance and exhibition by the Field Kitchen Academy.
