-Haloid print of horizontal galvanized steel strands of the sensed SAIC roof wind monitors. Context shows Lake Michigan winds would blow through windslicers and three roof towers anchored in N.S.E. directions...

- Gibbs Fjord, Baffin Island, Canada, a Rowley Island, Canada modulated laser was routed to a nearby microwave station.From here the multiplexed (combined) sounds were uplinked as two channels to the N .Atlantic satellite and were finally demuxed (returned to two channels) sounded and were "seen" in DeDeolen Hall, Rotterdam, Holland as different "aural shapes".

-1200 feet of gravel road and floral boundaries with bushes and grasses being monitored in mid-July as a concert..for FM radio broadcast. (This sound sculpture consisted of very long crossed wire strands above a dormant winter field in Michigan)

-Multi-colored laser sky drawing concepts were executed in this lithograph and where the spelling of Nasturtium occured on low cloud bottoms. ...................................................................................................................................

-iDetail of the Riverharps structural forms including the Bosch (after Hieronymus) -Brush Public Control Booth (without their.individual copper shrouds and part of the proposed constructions for the opposing banks of the Iowa river.in Iowa City, Iowa .........................................................................................................................................................................

-At a given time, the Windscube will yield a minimum of 13,440,616 sound possibilities and combinations.-- an easy task for the 16 bit microprocessor sampling at 8 megaHertz/second. ..................................................................

.-A Minnesota highway commission version of the original window Draft Monitor had a solar panel and storage.battery in the basement. The vibrational sound monitorings from the stainless steel strands was mixed with .a "straight line of sight sound collection" of anything falling within these focalized listening pathway. (Four parabolas were used with .each faceing in a N. S. E or W. direction which were later destroyed;..ROOF TOP VIEW: microphone at focal point of parabola, solar panel and copper tubes 4 sq.feet................................................

-Recording session at 30 below zero used 16 and 22 gauge wires about a foot above the ice floe were.anchored by steel eye-bolts in the Lake Superior Meany ice floe. These 3 nodes successfully yielded recordings. (Surface winds regularly blew dandruff-sized snow crystals into the strands. However, the wire on the right.headed back toward shore where sustained recordings were never made because of a family snowmobile noise)...................

-solar powered / selfbroadcasting Douglas fir & Birch..Both trees each had mixdowns from 4 Shadow sensors. into two FM transmitters and could be heard w/in a 1/2 mi. radius. (Each tree had a parabola and Shadow sensor (L.) parabola was aimed N.W.; ( R), aimed N. They sounded similar when wind-stirred; however, needle and leaf influences were audible. One acted like an antenna because of grounding faults in the pre-amps. The fir allowed me to hear German and French broadcasts. ................

-Satellite/KSJN stereo feed of Terrainstrument sounds from Duluth, Minnesota were input into a modulated laser beam. It left the.Walker Art Center and was received on a front surface mirror afixed to the bark of "the 1856 Loring tree"..(Simultaneously this single light was split into two beams. One was directed to another front surface mirror..anchored to the 202 microprocessor and these Duluth sounds were manipulated using the two speaker.planes. The second beam was received and input into amplifiers which fed the overhead tree's speakers..)..................

- Laser and windribbon proposal using front surface mirrors and solar panels..

-Aimed skyward and between trees this recycled four foot dish uses its epicentral microphone to collect focused sounds within its concavity and are output to the FM transmitter for DSPing at the computer. (one of several recycled dishes used in earlier directional sound recordings.

-Plans of this oaktree are to attach multiple vibration-monitoring sensors to embedded stainless steel pins. These would be inserted into primary, secondary, tertiary limbs and branches and on several main trunk positions. Dependent upon breezes and wind gusts sensors would monitor all tree vibrations, and provide for on-call FM broadcasting and computer inputs....

-Retro fit this recycled home receiving dish with sensor/cellphone to focus on Earth's phenomena and away from the crowded ring of Earth-orbiting satellites. The sensor a/or cellphone fits atop the protruding plastic-nosed receiver, secured with tiewraps. The arm extension, on this dish, moves in or out to foucus/collate sounds it collects.
