July 05 – August 31, 1982

"Sound Shade in C Major uses a series of aeolian organ pipes which function as both a compositional and structural framework within which other strung structures can be pitched, like sonic tents. These 'tent skins' are made of an industrial strapping material which has the wonderful quality of making the wind's passage both audible and visible. Low floating platforms are incorporated beneath the shades, which people can sit on, becoming in a sense 'airborne,' celebrating the windscape."
Douglas Hollis, Summer, 1982

Installation of Sound Stage in C Major by Douglas Hollis at Promontory Point was sponsored by The Renaissance Society in conjunction with The Museum of Contemporary Art and Mayor Byrne's New Music America '82.
