6557 Rue de l’Esplanade

November 25, 2016 - 6557 Rue de l'Esplanade (Montréal, QC)
6557 Rue de l’Esplanade — Jen Reimer & Max Stein

6557 Rue de l’Esplanade is a relatively quiet street between Rue Beaubien and St. Zotique. Next to a large warehouse near the end of the street, a transformer generates a 60 Hertz hum.

On November 25, 2016 we installed two speakers enclosed in plastic pipes on a nearby fence. The speakers amplified frequencies within the hum that beat and harmonized with the drone in real-time.
