For the duration of our residency at The Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography, we worked together with a local car audio technician (Nelson from Uneek Car Stereos and Alarms) to build a sound system out of car stereo equipment and found objects. And with music producer reallynathan (Christopher Baliwas) on a performance in order to test the system. In that way we wanted to look at how cars shape the soundscape of L.A. By making a crossover and passing all frequencies only through the two subwoofers, we altered the sound by its reproduction – bass being the main medium.
During the performance at the end of the residency, we instructed Christopher to execute a sequence of 1 minute loops which were played through the sound system for the duration of 15 minutes.
