ALUMNOTE

The main staircase of the GSA student Union was transformed into a playable Alumni Choir. The work uses voice recordings from 30 previous GSA students singing a note each on the tempered musical scale between F2 to C6. (87.3071hz-1046.5hz). Each alumni was asked to record one note (ahhhhhh) which could be 're-played' on the staircase by current students in the daily use of the building.

 

It was possible for visitors to the staircase to create melodies and complex chords using unique and unusual pairings of ex-students

voices.

 

The voices of the past are reinvested into this new building and an invitation is given to current students to make new work from the voices of their artistic ancestors.
