Talking Homes producer Jon Brumit leads a guided tour of Lake Merritt Loops, a walk-through/drive-by audio collage made from field recordings of extracted nature sounds from around Lake Merritt. The 15 Talking Homes transmitters — appropriated from the technology of commercial real estate devices called "Talking Properties" — placed in surrounding treetops, storefronts and rooftops, each play different sound pieces bringing a unique experience of the lake to participants.
Lake Merritt Loops was produced with support from the Lake Merritt Institute.
