The resonator formed part of the Acoustic Installation. The sound from the collector was played through a resonating chamber that also collected ambient noise in order to give it a spatial character; in one instance, a tape delay mechanism was used as a scaling element to artificially extend the space of the resonator by suggesting an echo, further characterizing and altering the soundscape. Sound was collected by three microphones embedded in different locations within the resonator; one microphone was placed in each of three spaces in the resonator formally and acoustically corresponding to the ideas of immediacy, projection, and feedback. Each microphone then transmitted sound to a corresponding acoustic projector.
