    I should clarify the details of this installation. Sorry that the details I initially provided were a bit sketchy but that was all I knew before the launch.

    First of all, the installation is ongoing. The structure itself will be there ’til the end of the year. Not sure how long the current audio and video pieces will be playing for, though. Right now, the audio pieces are playing during the daylight hours and the videos come on at night.

    Unfortunately, some of the people who work in the library’s offices (right by the installation) have complained about the “noise”. The organizers are currently in the process of trying to find a volume at which the sound pieces are audible to people visiting the installation but not to the people working in the library.

    I was there on Tuesday (22nd June). It was about 1pm and my piece was playing! I could only hear the audio above the traffic if I sat right next to one of the speakers and listened carefully. It was impossible to get any kind of stereo effect.

    My advice for anyone who’s interested is this: try it in a couple of weeks and let me know how it sounds.

    Update:

    Doesn’t sound like the organizers have had much luck negotiating a satisfactory volume for the audio but you can now listen to it on 94.9 FM, in and around the installation.
