Passing Through: The Falls -> North Hill

September 3, 2016

My new job had me driving through a neighborhood outside of Akron for the first time in fifteen years. It was sort of shocking to be taking a different route all of a sudden. Years ago, I had used a set-up to surreptitiously capture images of people on the sidewalk as I drove by, and, while I liked the results, I never did anything with it until now. The images used in this piece were captured on East Cuyahoga Falls Avenue between Tallmadge Avenue and Front Street. It’s a bit mathematical and the sound collage was an unfortunate necessity due to the captured sound not being usable, but overall I like how it turned-out.
