The first of a series of site-specific installations dedicated to the exploration of everyday domestic equipment.  Using a variety of carefully selected and placed transducers, sounds from a domestic freezer are amplified and projected into the A.S. Rymer auditorium expanding the machine and enacting an immersive sonorous geography for the audience to interact with.
