Shed 2 basic construction completed

Shed 2 under construction at site in Joshua Tree California

I made the trip to Joshua Tree and completed the basic structure for Shed 2 over the week of March 17-25, 2018. A special thanks to Aimee, for assisting at the beginning of the week when I needed extra hands and Victor Vincente of America who also lent a hand and took lots of documentation photos for me. The next trip will be to deliver Research Station 2 and the Mansard roof and do the finish work on the shed.

A very special thanks to my collector, Linda who hosted me and has provided the site!

Station 2 sound system

Each of the research stations in the KARF installations has its own sound system. I record and mix a soundscape that is specific to each station in addition to the sounds the equipment makes. Station 2 ( that will be installed in Shed 2 due to be built the first week of February, 2018, in Joshua Tree, California, where it will reside permanently), being themed around fluids and solutions, has a sound track that features voice transmissions of technicians and scientists talking about the science of Station 2. I wrote a script, recorded myself reading the parts, modified each voice track, and mixed in some other segments from other soundscapes I have done for other stations. The end mix will play from a 4 gigabyte mp3 player amplified through a scavenged car stereo. I had to hack the player so it would waken and go into play mode without anyone having to press the buttons on it. The photo shows the prototype setup on my electronics bench. Station 2 sound sys proto
