Paul J. Botelho, voice

site-specific work

In 1942 the U.S. Army seized the village of Alvira, PA. It razed Alvira and built an ordinance factory along with 149 concrete domes to store munitions.

This piece was performed in one of those domes where the composer improvised voice in reaction to the unique and long reverberation of the space. The audio of this work was captured Ambisonically and is presented in this video in binaural format.

The best listening experience is achieved with headphones playback.
