Low Down, 1988, Michael Brewster
Low Down, 1988, Installation view, Santa Monica Museum of Art

This computer-programmed acoustic sculpture investigated how different frequencies of sound waves affect the physical perception of a gallery or museum space. As visitors moved throughout the gallery, the sound field of Low Down changed in pitch, volume, and resonance, creating a work that was simultaneously site-specific and ”echo-specific.”
