Audio track of choir singing Mica Mica Parva Stella (Twinkle Twinkle Little Star)

This piece was made for an experimental collaborative exhibition called PURE, which ran from Oct. 14 – Nov. 12, 2006.  Participating artists were asked to limit the color palette of their work to black, white, silver, and transparent.  I decided to recycle both the audio and the idea of a domed environment from my MFA Thesis exhibition.  The audio is a chorus singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in Latin (Mica Mica Parva Stella.)  I made a fiber optic star field inside a dome covered box, and provided a bench and headphones for viewers to sit and gaze down into the stars while listening to the chorus sing.
