Delayed Auditory Feedback (D.A.F)

Delayed Auditory Feedback (D.A.F) is a type of altered auditory feedback that consists of extending the time between speech and auditory perception.

The D.A.F project was an on-site installation that experimented with sound. Two about facing Omni-directional microphones were attached inside the reclaimed wire  hand sculpture. The microphones were then amplified through a vintage speaker cabinet. As guests filled the room their conversations would then be picked up, ebbing and flowing sounds tend to vibrate; dancing on the cusp of audio feedback. It is a fine line between an echoing noise and total chaos.

This sound sculpture installation was created for Keystone Gallery’s new building in Lincoln Heights in June 2016, Los Angeles, California.
