Six photographs forming a panoramic view of the park were taken with a mobile phone and imported into a computer. Image size is reduced to 20 pixels wide. Color information captures the light, weather, architecture, and vibrancy of the city; data from each pixel is converted into sound in SuperCollider. Sounds are distributed among four speakers to correspond with locations in the panoramic view. This is a stereo mix, translating the six photos from left to right. Revisiting the site of Hildegard Westerkamp and Andra McCartney’s soundwalk of Queen Elizabeth Park ten years earlier, this piece takes a different approach by using color data as source material for music and for evocation of a place and time.
