In a home filled with rare art objects from around the world, a disjunctured set of tales unravel about the travels of collector Don Boros. Dislocating fact from fiction, and time from place, the tales are intermixed with the notable text “Sensations of Tone” by 19th century physicist Hermann von Helmholtz. This work exists as a single channel and interactive film. The interactive version utilizes the audiences iPhones, shaping the film and audience experience in very different ways sonically, visually, and conceptually. Sounds are distributed throughout the audience utilizing the acoustic architecture of the theater and visuals are used to bring a different context to the narrative through text and image. “In a Free Sound Field” is the third in a trilogy of films exploring sound.
