Environments - Temple of Mercury features sound gestures from a corrugated plastic pipe and the impulse response of the Temple of Mercury, situated in a wide caldera near the west of Naples (Italy). The Temple is also known as "The Echo Temple" for its several acoustic reflections caused by a dome vault and water on the floor. The temple is entirely made of tophus, and it has a diameter of 21.5 meters (71ft) and a circular opening in the vault reminiscent of the one in the Pantheon in Rome. The sampled instrument produces flute, horn, efxs, impulsive sounds, and, with a little electroacoustic modification, feedback sounds. All sounds are playable with or without the convolution of the Temple.
