"Deep Earth Dome" (2006-2008) was a sound installation and seismic listening space in Studio 37 at Joy Street Artists in Somerville, MA. The project was motivated by a simple question that haunted me for years: “If you could stand inside the Earth, what would you hear?”
The sounds from Deep Earth Dome are documented in the audio CD "Earth Sound".
The text below was written at the time of the project.
