About

"Elastic Ambience" is a project by Julian Day, commissioned by the Orange County Museum of Art. Responding to our sense of time metamorphosing over 2020—days stretching into months, hours contracting into minutes— offers a series of 24 hour-long soundscapes that will accumulate over the final twenty-four days of 2020. Inspired by Erik Satie’s century-old concept of ‘furniture music’ and ambient composition, “Elastic Ambience” is a set of aural moods that mark the hours. Starting Tuesday, December 8 at midnight, one hour of sound will be added each day to a recurring broadcast that occurs every 12 hours, completing the aural clock by the New Year.
