I am sitting in a room.

Ok. So I figure it is a nice day. The sun is out, the birds discussing politics. Flowers having sex to the tunes of springtime.

What a better thing to do then staying indoors listening to Alvin Lucier's 'I Am Sitting In A Room'.

A great example of process music (he records himself, then plays it back in a room, and re-records it playing, repeating till his voice is replaced with resonant harmonies and tones of the room itself), this is a well know work in the sonic arts community. His works range from installation art to slow escaping minimalism, mainly focusing on the properties of sound itself. Starting in the early sixties, he still produces beautiful slow evolving pieces for you to fade in and out of consciousness to.
