The Sound Cave Project is a series of musical art installations that began in 2007. Innovative musical elements integrated within them often include tunings based on the Schumann Resonance (Earth’s fundamental tone), just-intonation, natural overtone series, fibonacci series, astronomical periods of time, ancient Greek/medieval modes, a 33-note per octave scale, piano mics, sub-floor speakers, binaural beats, sympathetic resonance and a foot percussion dance floor that resonates thousands of strings. These art installations are often accompanied by performances, long form workshops and super quick TED-style talks/performances highlighting innovative aural elements involved in these projects. The experiences created by them are often both profound and awe-inspiring.
The largest Sound Cave Project to date was titled "Shrine of Sympathetic Resonance." A 37' tall, 50' across musical sculpture with over 10,000 strings for people to go inside, play and have every action sympathetically resonated and echoed back by the strings.
