Artist Matthew Howell presents his next iteration of Polyenvironments, an evolution of this piece presented during our SonicLab series in 2015. Participants are invited to experience a freeform soundwalk using their own (or provided) headphones via their smartphones to explore a virtual soundscape by walking around the gardens and interior of the de Young Museum. With existing GPS navigation on their phones, their position will alter the soundscape while they move about the museum.

Four artists probe invisible architecture entangled within the iconic museum built by architects Herzog and de Meuron. Returning artist Matthew Howell’s augmented soundwalk invites participants to explore sonic architecture of varied audio environments in the gardens and perimeter of the Museum. Jeff Cravath activates Turrell’s Three Gems with a solo and interactive performance using tone chimes.

Visit James Turrell's Three Gems in the Osher Sculpture Garden during its optimal viewing time—at sunset! Open 5–8:45 pm.

In 2014, artist James Turrell (b. 1943) contacted the Museums to refurbish Three Gems, a site-specific “skyspace” located in a grass-covered hill in the Osher Sculpture Garden. The work was approaching its tenth anniversary at the de Young, having been installed during the opening of the new building in 2005.

At sunset, Jeff Cravath presents Chromatic Conversations / Scoring the Environment beginning with a solo semi-improvisational set using tone-chimes and manipulated field recordings collected from the Sonoran Desert within James Turrell’s Three Gems acoustic Dome. Upon entrance to the dome participants trade the use of their voice for one soft-striking bell. Each of the 24 bells or “Tone-Chimes” make up two octaves of twelve semitones. Participants are invited to “chime in” to the dome’s projected color narrative based on the tone they have received.
