faith comes by hearing
faith comes by hearing is a multi-channel audio installation exploring the themes of transience and permanence within the Enos Park neighborhood of Springfield, Illinois. Recorded through the structures that make up the community, this work of musique concrète translates the sounds of a lively neighborhood as heard by the buildings and objects that so often define it. Symbols of growth and transition abound as the sounds of rain storms, revivals, trains and music are filtered through lamp posts, sculptures and buildings. The resulting impression is at once both familiar and strange as the ephemeral and enduring intermingle in this unfamiliar fashion.
