musician and sound artist
Halsey works as a musician and sound artist living outside of Boston. Both his installations and musical performances make extensive use of spoken human voice recordings as musical elements, alongside traditional and electronic instruments. He collects these voices from otherwise uninvolved individuals whom he records in various locations, from museums to street corners to rock clubs. Halsey's most recent sound art installation, *Scapes*, was on exhibit at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, MA, through November 2010. This piece is a location-sensitive evolving musical composition that allows participants to augment the physical landscape of the museum's sculpture park by leaving audio commentary in locations of their choosing for future participants to hear.
