Composed by Annie F. Adams with Steven Hess.
Requiem was a four-channel sound installation in the Fern Room of Chicagos Lincoln Park Conservatory.
It was an installment in Experimental Sound Studio's Florasonic series from Sept. 2010 to Jan. 2011.
Annie Feldmeier Adams (The Black Box) and Steven Hess (Haptic, Locrian Pan American, On, Ural Umbo)
created a Requiem for those who still lie buried below the conservatory and the park. Joseph Mills from Haptic and
Brendan Burke from Interbellum aided in the recording of the installation.
Annie Feldmeier Adams (who has made videos for Interbellum, Pan American, Cristal and Locrian) created a video for
the Requiem, with visual material sourced exclusively from the Fern Room.

FSS released a specially packaged, limited edition DVD with that video.
