Jeff Talman Under the Sun (2018)

This third collaboration with Dr. Daniel Huber, astrophysicist, University of Hawaii and Kepler MIssion, NASA (2013-2014) features the scaled sound of the sun as determined by solar acoustic waveform oscillation modeling. As the only sound source for this composition of symphonic proportions, the work immerses the listener in a sonic essence of radiant light as the cosmic reality of the otherwise space-veiled sounds engage art and the source of life on Earth. Featured in St Peter's Church NYC during Summer 2018, the eight channel installation sound has been mixed to the binaural stereo format.

Jeff Talman Sea of Curves (2012, rev 2013)
Sea of Curves evokes the ocean's powerful, sensual nature while mirroring subtle inflections and dramatic shifts in light, transparency, tone and mood as conjured by the sea. Project audio originates in ocean wave sounds recorded by hydrophone, seismometer and microphone in collaboration with ocean researchers Matt Fowler and Dr. James Traer. Symphonic in scope, the sound includes the 'hum of the Earth,' the planetary sonic vibration believed to be caused by waves sounds. CD notes available here.
