Sound artist Christopher DeLaurenti’s audio work for the RapidRide A Line, discussed in a previous post, is now available for listening online ( or on the phone (206-651-5981).

Both versions are interactive. The website lets you control the volume and features three sets of sliders that allow you to choose the balance between two descriptors (for example, “obvious” vs. “mysterious”). When you call the phone number, you hear a short introduction and are then told to press any button to change the sounds you’re hearing.

Check it out and let us know: what do you think?

DeLaurenti talks about the project on the Public Art Tumblr blog, and will also discuss his field recordings on KUOW radio (94.9 FM) on Monday at 12.20 p.m.

Update (11/1): you can also learn more about the project on 4Culture’s blog. And if you have comments for the artist and/or 4Culture, send them to or click on the question mark on the project site.
