KahnVolutions at the Exeter Library

"I see the library as a place where the librarian can lay out the books,
open especially to selected pages to seduce the reader...
the reader should be able to to take the book and go to the light."


The Rockefeller Hall


The process of Convolution

The dulcimer piano sound and an ambient telephone sound

The sound of a stairwell banister being struck

The dulcimer/piano and the railing hit sounds convolved together


Digitally Enhanced Sounds

~ The low range strings of a piano being "rolled" on by a timpani mallet convolved with the sound of a woodblock from the Rockefeller Hall court.


~ The voice of Louis Kahn saying "Most Expressive" convolved with the sound of a banister railing being struck in the Library's stairwell.
