Murmur presents sound as multiplicity, creating a listening space in which to hear sound. Not to hear any particular sound, but to hear sound as plural, spatially dispersed and noisy. The installation generates constantly shifting pink noise, like that of a crowd, traffic, the sea or a wood, and so sounds at once like many things and nothing in particular. It is not intended to provide anything specific to hear. There is no clear distinction imposed between the sound of the installation and that of its surrounds. I attempt only to draw listeners into the multiplicity of sound around them.
