Aylesworth Hall was a student dormitory at Colorado State University from 1958 to 2019. Built-in response to an influx of students in the years following World War Two, the building operated as a dormitory for several years before gradually being converted to other functions, housing many different departments, offices, and classes during its lifetime before being torn down in 2019. The Aylesworth Project revives the dormitory through pieces created from the sounds of Aylesworth Hall, pieces that reflect sonic states of the building during the last two years of its life- states of disuse, emptiness, and demolition.
