Surrounding originated as a site-specific sound performance commissioned for the Hamon Observation Tower at the de Young Museum in San Francisco by the Soundwave Biennial.

Surrounding uses the organic architecture of the de Young Museum as a point of departure by incorporate field recordings captured throughout Golden Gate Park and synthesized sounds created to situate themselves within the field recordings. This relationship between the field recordings and synthesized sounds is intended to echo the symbiotic relationship between the architecture of the de Young Museum and Golden Gate Park while creating a deep and meditative listening environment.
