True ghost stories and paranormal experiences were gathered through individual conversations, spirit communication attempts, telephone messages, radio technology experiments, found audio clips, social media sound fragments... I discovered that ghosts are everywhere; disembodied individuals and energies seem to be present in increasing numbers. Belief systems and skepticism varies as widely as the personalities I encountered.

The material collected was recomposed into an audio installation that drifts between music composition, cut up audio docudrama, and ghost hunt: a mashup of spirituality, mythology, history, technology and a coping with imminent mortality. Seven low-wattage fm transmitters were installed throughout the deCordova Museum. Visitors to the museum were able to pick up a radio from the front desk & use it to seek out the transmissions throughout the building. The stories became ghosts themselves, and by physically searching through space, invisible fragments revealed.
