Rehearsal on Thus., Oct. 15 - got all equipment mounted inside the elevator panel. Mon., Oct. 26, 2nd rehearsal, did another recording with the PS3 camera mounted on our ceiling bracket for position and analysis of those fine points like when does the arrow change from up to down, what happens when no button is pushed, how long between floor 1 and 4 when neither 2 nor 3 is pushed?

the home stretch

We have been working on the physical installation in the elevator during rehearsal (and other) times, including finding or adapting a camera which filters out infra-red light, as the floor number display is hard to read - all elements show up too well - with the IR sensitivity. Everyone at the Cultural Center has been most helpful. In addition, we've created a logical flowchart that shows the passage of audio file information from source to display, and have decided that since the doors are open more than they are closed when the elevator is in actual use, we will play the categories when stopped at a floor, the drones (chants, medical sounds) while the elevator is moving. Voila a sample of what that might sound like:
