Zenith is an evolution of an earlier work that was part of “Falling,” documented in these pages.  The project was changed to accommodate a new sound work that is played out of it.  The piece was places alone in a room and the isolation served to subject the viewer to a wash of sound created by adapting a vinyl recording from the “Jackie Gleason Orchestra,” of “I Only Have Eyes For You.”  At one point, the record skips over a passage; this passage repeats and is thus transformed over a 10-15 intervals into a sonorous ambient beat that like the heart, fades and stops.  An audio CD of three variations on the sequence are available from the artist.    Below is one track (24 megabytes, this will load slowly.)
