“Still and Moving Lines of Silence in Families of Hyperbolas is a four-part work begun in 1972. Part I is a sound installation in which closely tuned pure waves spin around the room at various speeds and in different directions; Part III is similar, except that snare drums are sympathetically resonated by the passing waves; and in Part IV dancers discover and move in valleys of quiet sound produced by one wave flowing from two loudspeakers, forming hyperbolic curves in space.”
