Cellphonia: Toronto SONic Geo (2013)

Cellphonia:SONicGeo Toronto was formulated around the concept of moving through time and the landscape of Toronto. The participants asked to "press" a number to answer one of the three questions:

Where have you been?
Where are you now?
Where are you going?

The automated server then puts their various responses into three sound storage locations: Then-Now-Future. The score reflects the decision of the participant with the caveat that each new call is placed at the very beginning of the piece in a prelude as all the older calls ripple down into the score to be played in a new time in the context of the re-rendered score. In this way the piece is completely recreated with each new phone call.
