Glossier LA: Canyon Room
For the soundscape of the Canyon Room in Glossier’s new LA store, Charlie Klarsfeld, set off into the depths of the Arizona desert to record a striking collection of site specific sounds, ranging from haunting canyon winds to distant circling vultures. He even ventured into a seldom travelled, albeit treacherous section of the iconic Antelope Canyon (the original reference for the Canyon Room’s design) with two Navajo guides, where he used the latest technology to record the frequency response of the canyon, allowing him to recreate the reverb of the space with ineffable accuracy.
Finally, to create the sense of a vast expanse in Glossier’s 70 sq. ft recreation, Klarsfeld used a hidden microphone to process the sound within the room, causing it to echo into an illusionary infinity.
