To make the sound component for the piece, I turned to the audio track of video footage I had shot during last year’s Fourth of July fireworks display on the Hudson River in New York. I then extracted the pops and booms of the explosions themselves, removing the object of the crowd’s fascination, so that only the reaction to what was once there remains.
