Abstract

Bill Fontana is an American composer and artist who has been working with large-scale sound installations since the 1970s. In his installations he recontextualises sounds by transmitting them from one location to another, and uses the transported sounds as acoustical ‘overlay’, masking the sounds naturally occurring in the installation spaces. His installations often occur in central urban environments, and he has, for example, been commissioned in conjunction with the fifty-year anniversary of D-Day (1994, Paris), and the 100-year anniversary of Brooklyn Bridge (1983, New York City).
