A collaborative sonic disembodiment by Leah Rico and Ven Voisey.

Seven low-wattage radio transmitters were installed throughout the Greylock Monument tower atop Mount Greylock, the highest point of elevation in the state of Massachusetts. Guests were given a radio and asked to move throughout the tower to seek out the transmissions, each one simultaneously broadcasting a fragment of the composition. With the assistance of the radios, listeners become transmitters of sound and effect the composition depending on how they navigate the space. The air is impression without presence. The signal leaves a trace in the ether, guiding new songs to be sung.
