Symposium:


Creation Year:

    2014

Medium:


    MP3

Artist Statement:


    The title of this piece refers to Alvin Lucier’s I am Sitting in a Room (1969), in which Lucier records himself narrating a text and then plays the recording back into the room, effectively re-recording it. To create this new work, Ohkubo compresses sound using an MP3 converter, creating a disruption, and repeats the process in order to explore the aesthetic of glitch and experience the beauty of morphing sounds.
