In Your Ear and Out Your Nose is a sound installation that plays on our habitual responses to an everyday sound, the car horn. Car horns usually fully on or fully off. In this piece I explore the space between on and off by activating the horns with other sound signals. At this stage of development I drive the horns with the sound of talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh. The result is a hybrid of two sounds that both rely primarily on rhythm and timbre to convey meaning. I have collected several antique car horns dating from the 1920s, 30s, and 50s which could be used along with more recently made car horns.
