Fathom: Self-Assembling Music
by Emily Shisko and Shane A. Myrbeck
October 5, 2013–February 1, 2014

Come inside. Listen. Walk around.

Make music using Fathom, an installation that uses six distinct always-present sounds. Four of the six sounds can be controlled by visitors. As these sounds are moved around the room and they cross paths with other sounds they fuse, creating new music.
