« 1 Minute Sound Art piece | Main | Background Noise »

I am sitting in a room reflection

As I am new to sound art that was and probably will remain for some time the longest sound art piece I've listened to thus far. I closed my eyes and felt everything around me disappear just imagining the emptiness of this room that Alvin Lucier is recording this in. This piece forces your brain to work. Even when his voice is distorted to almost incomprehension your brain can still pick out bits and pieces of the original speech. By the time it was over I felt exhausted by the concentration that I had unconciously exherted just to hear his voice for as long as possible.
