Objects-Interiors James O’Callaghan

Objects-Interiors is a work which “takes place” inside a piano. The historied, polysemous instrument is re-examined as its own kind of interior space. Much of the sound material consists of impulse responses — bursts of noise that capture the reverberant properties of an acoustic space. As the piece moves from capturing the real space of the piano, it imagines other spaces, comparing the piano’s resonant chamber to other kinds of interiors, and, finally into a surreal world where space, motion, and sound are blurred.
