Interstices is an attempt to portray the essence of Portland, Maine as it has never been portrayed before. Over the course of the past two years and continuing into 2015, Andrew Thompson has been collecting hour-long field recordings at every street crossing in the city at all times of the day and night. These recordings will be displayed in their entirety, with each one being played back via it’s own speaker, in an immersive sonic installation. This nearly five hundred-channel system will initially be installed at the Emery Community Arts Center in Farmington, Maine in fall 2015.
