Dream House, 1990

La Monte Young, Marian Zazeela

A mythical work, the Dream House is an installation of sound and music created by four hands, by the composer La Monte Young and his wife Marian Zazeela. Visitors entering this room flooded with light and music are invited to literally immerse themselves in the sound and the colour to perceive the nuances. Seated or standing, immobile or moving to their own rhythm within the room, visitors can sense the acoustic changes caused by their own movements, no matter how slight they may be. The spectators/listeners see the music just as they hear the colour in a pure synaesthetic perception. Time seems to slow down and the connection to space and time becomes something else, between real and imaginary.
