Come to My House consists of 8 songs played in surround sound through 8 powered audio speakers. Each speaker is itself a work of art, encased in printed vinyl with wood and metal appendages. NOT a soundscapey installation, these are actual Amy songs, dense and complex with lyrics addressing property lines, love and lust and loss, prickly plants, and other reflections from the Ark that is my home. The music ranges from choral counterpoint to electronic dance to a swell of chattering legal jargon.
