I think, the hardest shop to forge a sonic connection with has been the High Street’s furniture store. Nothing is made at the shop, and the majority of what they do sell makes too subtle a sound to work in the context of this installation.  The shop, however, does a sideline in decorative objects, such as humorous signs and 1950′s-type ornaments, a lot of which do relate more easily to the acoustic world.  So, I have reached a compromise… in that I have agreed with the shop’s owners to create sound canvas based on a window display that focuses on those objects that in themselves suggest sounds.  In a sense then, they are creating the score through the placement of their objects, so all I have to do now is produce something sonically equivalent.
