8-channel Sound Installation


417hz is an 8-channel sound installation made up of field recordings, interviews and chakra frequency compositions. All the sounds in this work were recorded and then played back ambisonically. The listener experiences the installation on a large round sculptural seating area within a completely darkened space. The work was recorded at the various frequencies of different focal points of the body, this combined with the heated seating encourages a full body listening experience. 


In this work, Cameron uses her own autobiography as a platform from which to explore the potential for hereditary otherness through her understanding of her own queerness and her late mothers practice of witchcraft. The work is a dialogue between narrative interview recordings and deep abstract sound, through this conversation the artist seeks to explore our relationships to ghosting bodies and their disorientating effect on our space.
