Recuerdium was an interactive installation and performance created by James Longmire and me in 2008. We connected contact microphones run through various types of distortion pedals to objects in the installation, and the lighting was run through a color sound, which regulated the flow of electricity to what it was connected to based on decibel levels. We and the folks who engaged with the installation could thus play the room to create all sorts of interesting effects. There were other features like a Bulgarian language tape run through distortion that would play when someone would sit in the arm chair, and a projection that was obscured by a broken record on an electric drill that ran when things got loud in the room. We each had our hearts horribly broken that year, which I think had something to do with the dystopian broken nuclear family vibe of the performance.
