This is a recording taken from about 7 years ago when I was documenting sounds from home. For another sampling see Symphony of the Domestic. This piece, Monstration, has been installed in the gallery by using a directional speaker situated in the ceiling pointing downward toward the floor. Installed in this way, the viewer would literally walk through the sound waves experiencing the tantrum somewhat intimately; just as a tantrum by a child happens in the safe, intimate space of the home.

The title merges the two concepts of "demonstration" and "mostrare" which means "to show" in Italian.

Monstration is an audio recording of my daughter having a temper tantrum at age 5.  Installation art, sound art by Courtney Kessel
