"You enter a clearing in the forest, sit down on a wooden stump, and simply listen. Cardiff and Bures Miller’s work incorporates the actual forest into an audio composition emitted from more than thirty speakers. Sometimes there is a near synchronicity of natural and mediated sounds, and it’s tough to discern what is live and what is recorded."
“I am interested in how audio affects our perception of the physical world. We understand three-dimensional space by using our vision , but also by the character of sounds we hear. If these sounds are manipulated and changed, then our perception of reality can be drastically affected”
