Description (in English): 

On the occasion of the ELO 2010 conference celebrating Robert Coover, I have devised a 24-channel sound installation/performance.  Given the theme of the conference (Archive & Innovate), I chose to investigate the sonic literary archive, utilizing recordings of Robert Coover in the reading his own work as a framework for this composition.  Through a computational process of spectral analysis, editing, and re-synthesis, solo speech is transformed into a chorus of diffused instrumental timbres.  Time is stretched, allowing the ebb and flow of the original readings to be heard very slowly - creating an ambient, electro-acoustic arena.
