performing with Paula Matthusen at Experimental Intermedia 9pm 12/13

December 10, 2017

paula matthusen seth cluett phill niblockFor their first performance together, Paula Matthusen and Seth Cluett will fill a table with transduced tubes, 3D printed shapes, amplified objects, and cassette recorders; feedback will be used to explore spaces large and small while software and hardware instruments capture sound as a material to be sculpted in time; both are composers, artists, and performers in equal and sometime not equal parts, so no particular preference will be given to whether the sounds are loud or soft or short or long but a great deal of attention will almost certainly be paid to listening in the moment

new site specific performance at MAC/VAL – Musée d’Art Contemporain du Val-de-Marne on July 2 at 17:30

June 21, 2017

From the website:

Concert, lectures, rencontres
À partir de 16h, Nef.

Pour ces « Interludes critiques », Jean-Christophe Norman invite trois auteurs et un musicien à poser leur regard critique ou poétique sur son œuvre murale Terre à terre, et plus généralement sur son univers et ses influences.
Avec Marjorie Micucci, J. Emil Sennewald, Frank Smith et Seth Cluett.

– Le « pas épars » d’Ulysse
Lecture de Marjorie Micucci, critique d’art et poète.

« Jean-Christophe Norman est une intrigue, une fiction. Une énigme ordinaire du monde. Il glisse sa main et son pas dans l’écriture au noir du passage ou dans une écriture au blanc de l’éphémère. Sa main est une émotion, littéraire et poétique ; son corps entre dans cette main comme il entre dans la vie… Un jour, Jean-Christophe Norman entra dans « la vie sensible » de l’Ulysse de Joyce, qu’il transporta alors de ville en ville, de mur en mur, de sol en sol, nuit et jour, et le pas revenu d’Ulysse se mit à réécrire sa traversée, réinventant une fiction qui ignore sa fin (…). »

– « Jean-Christophe Norman, artiste en co-errance »
Lecture de Frank Smith, écrivain et poète, vidéaste et réalisateur.

« Les chiens errent à la recherche d’une issue. Dans le piège des centres-villes désertés, les chiens errent sans fin. Les chiens errent et construisent le monde depuis le sens d’un regard porté collectivement sur la réalité et ses « matières », quitte à en être vaincus. ».

Extrait du texte paru dans le catalogue de l’exposition « Matières » de Jean-Christophe Norman au Centre Dürrenmatt de Neufchâtel.

– « Feuilles volantes »
Lecture de J. Emil Sennewald, critique d’art, enseignant et journaliste

Depuis les premiers jours de la création in situ de Terre à terre, J. Emil Sennewald produit chaque semaine une nouvelle « feuille volante », qui est donnée à lire au public dans le Nef et sur le site internet du musée.
Vendues sur les marchés dès le XIIe siècle, les feuilles volantes ont été l’un des premiers médias de masse. Avant de prendre leur forme moderne – le tract et le manifeste –, elles colportaient des histoires spectaculaires, des faits divers et curieux. Ce projet réitère cet état d’esprit, en lien avec la démarche de l’artiste, pour rendre compte du processus de son travail.

– Concert de Seth Cluett
17h30

Artiste, musicien et compositeur, Seth Cluett propose au MAC VAL un concert inédit et immersif, en jouant de la perception de la matière sonore dans son rapport à la mémoire et au temps. Seth Cluett est régulièrement invité à se produire dans le monde entier. En France, il a présenté son travail au Palais de Tokyo, à Main d’œuvres ou au GRM. Il a également publié des articles pour les revues Tacet, BYPASS ou encore Shifter.

new work premiered by Christin Schillinger for solo bassoon and 3d printed loudspeaker extension at New Music Gathering 2017

May 8, 2017

New Music Gathering is an annual three-day conference dedicated to the performance, production, promotion, support and creation of new concert music. 

Taking place on May 11-13, 2017 at Bowling Green State University, the focus of New Music Gathering 2017 will be on “Support.” The conference appropriately features percussionist, conductor, and author Steven Schick as our keynote speaker—who, for the past 40 years, has championed contemporary music by commissioning or premiering more than 150 new works.
Headlining performers include the boundary-
breaking International Contemporary Ensemble and New Music Detroit on May 11, Steven Schick on May 12, and Michigan’s Grand Valley State University New Music Ensemble on May 13.

With concerts, lecture recitals, roundtable discussions, talks, and everything from composer-performer “speed dating,” to one-on-one consultations with industry professionals. #NMG2017 aims to be both a conference in the traditional sense but also quite literally a collective place for things to grow, improve, solidify and above all get personal.

Remembering Pauline Oliveros at the Park Avenue Armory, Feb 6 from 4-10pm

February 5, 2017

Phil Edelstein (Composers Inside Electronics) and I are leading the Apple Box Orchestra to cap off the concert at the end of the night.

From the Armory Website

The Armory and the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) host an open commemoration of the life and work of Pauline Oliveros at the Park Avenue Armory

ICE and the Armory are partnering to welcome the vast network of Oliveros’ students, collaborators, and friends into an open set of performances, meditations, storytelling, and Deep Listening. Spaces dedicated to historical audio recordings, film and documentary clips, participatory listening sessions, and cutting edge electro-acoustic performances are open to the public as a free offering of new experiences.

Composer Pauline Oliveros touched countless artistic lives as a tireless advocate for making and listening to new sounds. As a pioneer of electronic music and inventor of transformative listening methods, Oliveros changed the way music is made and conceived for several generations of musicians.

For those inspired by Oliveros or who are curious to learn more about her beautiful life and work, the day provides an opportunity to learn, reflect, and listen in the spaces where Oliveros held several Deep Listening sessions during her April 2016 residence as part of the Armory’s Artists Studio series in the newly restored Veterans Room. Contributors include Claire Chase and the International Contemporary Ensemble, Either/OR, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Deep Listening Certificate Holders and members of the Center for Deep Listening at Rensselaer, Anagram Ensemble, Ione, and many of Oliveros’ longest collaborators.

Solo performance at Canessa Gallery in San Francisco, January 11, 2017 at 8pm

December 29, 2016

 

 

 

 

January 11, 2017
Canessa Gallery
708 Montgomery St
San Francisco
California 94111
See the Facebook event here: http://bit.ly/2iJwrVn

From the press release:

For our first show of 2017 we are excited to present Seth Cluett from NYC with Eric Glick Rieman and Jim Haynes.

Seth Cluett
Seth Cluett will perform live using sung and electronically generated sine tones, room acoustic phenomena, and recorded sound to explore the boundary between personal and communal listening. Constructing a focused, attentive perceptual space and an elastic, malleable experience of time, the sound world of this work is tensely suspended between full body immersion and brittle, sparse timelessness.

Seth Cluett is an American artist whose work includes installation, concert music, performance, photography, and critical writing. His «subtle…seductive, immersive» (Artforum) sound work has been characterized as «rigorously focused and full of detail» (e/i) and «dramatic, powerful, and at one with nature» (The Wire). The recipient of awards from Meet the Composer, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant his work has been presented internationally at venues such as the Palais de Tokyo, the Whitney Museum, MoMA PS1, STEIM, Apexart, and Eyebeam. He has published writings with Tacet Revue, Leonardo Music Journal, and the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, and his creative work is documented on the Line Imprint and Errant Bodies Press as well as Sedimental and Winds Measure Recordings. In the fall of 2015 he joined the faculty of Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken where he is jointly appointed in the programs in Visual Arts & Technology and Music & Technology.

Eric Glick Rieman
Eric Glick Rieman is a composer/improviser and instrument manipulator, whose interests at the moment include the lengths of rat’s tongues, snail trails, and plate tectonics. His fascination with putting sounds into space has led him into performing with the amplified innards of a modified Rhodes electric piano, and this, as well as piano, has been his primary performance instrument for the past 17 years. He composes for instruments and ensembles, often including improvisation as part of the compositional structure.
ericglickrieman.com/

Jim Haynes
Jim Haynes is an artist defining his work through the phrase, «I rust things.» The statement embraces a multiplicity of meanings across various media. There are three major approaches in the work at large: the mangled surfaces of corroded photographs, the cryptic tension of the video / expanded cinema pieces, and the caustic field disturbances in sound composition. Blight. Dislocation. Subcutaneousness. Toxicity. Brackishness. Psychic unease. These allusions (amongst others) develop and materialize through various chemical, digital and/or analog means, often an intertwined amalgam. This process seeks to accentuate the instability of these conditions and territories as a series of evocations, hauntings, convulsions, and evanescence.

Through sound (and more recently video), Haynes investigate these properties of corrosion, specifically on how decay parallels and relates to the perception of time when cycles of activity collapse into stasis, and how that stasis can rupture when any number of pressures are applied. These result from a cross-contamination of ultrasound detection, shortwave reception, surveillance camera observation, moribund radiophonic exploration, and/or electro-magnetic disruption.

Based in California, Jim Haynes has exhibited internationally at the San Francisco Museum Of Modern Art, the Lausanne Underground Film Festival, the Berkeley Art Museum, WestSpace (Melbourne, Australia), and Diapason (New York). Recorded media has been published through Editions Mego, Ghostly International, Drone Records, Hooker Vision, Intransitive, Semperflorens, Elevator Bath, and The Helen Scarsdale Agency. He has also been awarded residencies at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program (California), Recombinant Media Labs (California), Chalk Hill Artist Residence, Jack Straw Productions (Seattle), and MoKS (Estonia). He has participated in a number of fruitful collaborations with Loren Chasse, Keith Evans, Steven Stapleton, and M.S. Waldron. Until 2015, Haynes was the Vice President and Curatorial Director for 23five Incorporated, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the development and increased awareness of sound arts within the public arena. He is also the lone occupant at The Helen Scarsdale Agency.

Duo with Michael Bullock for Work 17 at the Sump in Ridgewood on 1/4 at 8pm

December 29, 2016

WORK 17 Doors 8:00pm, show 8:30pm
$8:00 or donation, entrance by stairs at Houdini’s, on Decatur St.

A rare performance back in NYC of Early Web – the duo of Anastasia Clarke and Chris Penalosa. Anastasia is an Oakland/NYC based composer and performer, using tabletop electronics and software and hardware instruments of her own design. Chris Penalosa, based in NYC, uses modular electronics. He works with the Generations Unlimited record label.
With Live video projection by Katherine Liberovskaya.

A rare duet by two old friends :Mike Bullock and Seth Cluett are sound makers with 20 years of collaboration behind them. With idiosyncratic individual practices and a strong inclination to improvise, they check in with one another periodically to see what they sound like together. They have been practicing in an anechoic chamber to unearth strange new acoustic relationships. Mike will play an acoustic bass, and Seth will play an amplified zither. Each player’s sound is fed into the body of the others’ instrument through tactile transducers and as you might expect, there is some feedback. Their brains are connected through the ether and the results are surprising even to them.

The definition of rare. A solo performance by percussionist and explorer Sean Meehan.

inward-turning histories software/score release party w/ Avant.org at The Current Museum in NYC – 11/10 at 8pm

November 7, 2016

seth cluett moma/ps1

From Avant.org:

Avant.org presents Seth Cluett: Inward-Turning Histories at The Current Museum on Nov. 10, 2016.

Cluett will realize a composition directed around psychoacoustic methods to create individualized listening spaces for audience members using field-recordings and masking/occlusion. The work considers social politics using psychoacoustics as a cypher: what people hear is different and individualized from seat to seat. This performance will utilize the unique acoustic resonances of interior of the The Current Museum at 60 Sullivan Street.

The work was first premiered at the Avant.org Sonic Research: Psychoacoustics program during the ALLGOLD residency at MoMA/PS1. The piece has recently manifested an editioned artist score and software environment. The event is in celebration of the release of this artist print of the score for Inward-Turning Histories. The print also includes access to a customized software package to be used as an instrument to perform the work on your own. The software can also be used as a framework for building a site-specific sound installation based on the unqiue acoustic space of the listener’s environment.


Admission: $10 general; $5.00 sudent; $20 with a signed artist edition.

The doors open at 7pm. Cluett will speak with curator Regine Basha at 8pm and perform shortly thereafer.

Listen to an excerpt of Inward-Turning Histories here: https://soundcloud.com/sethcluett/inward-turning-history-excerpt-live-at-allgold-momaps1


“Places are fragmentary and inward-turning histories, pasts that others are not allowed to read, accumulated times that can be unfolded but like stories held in reserve, remaining in an enigmatic state, symbolizations encysted in the pain or pleasure of the body. ‘I feel good here’ : the well-being under-expressed in the language it appears in like a fleeting glimmer is a spatial practice.” – Michel de Certeau


Seth Cluett is an artist and composer based in Hoboken, NJ. Cluett earned an MFA in Electronic Art from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a PhD in Composition from Princeton University and is an Assistant Professor at Stevens Institute of Technology where he holds a joint appointment in Visual Arts and Music.

This program was organized by Charles Eppley & Sam Hart for Avant.org, a distributed project space for critical thought and practice. “Inward-Turning Histories” is presented with support by The Current Museum of Art, a non-profit institution devoted to digital art. Subscribe here to stay Current.

From the press release:

Max Feed
A collective exhibition on the work and legacy of Max Neuhaus

October 9 – December 30, 2016

Frac Franche-Comté
Besançon (France)
Artists in the Exhibition

Seth Cluett, Trisha Donnelly, Nina Katchadourian, Myriam Lefkowitz, Simon Ripoll-Hurier, Sébastien Roux, Matthieu Saladin, Oleg Tcherny, Olivier Vadrot and Max Neuhaus.
Curated by: Daniele Balit

Second part of the exhibition

Mix Feed, with Samon Takahashi at the Institut Supérieur de Beaux Arts de Besançon, from November 10, 2016.

About the exhibition

Max Feed is the first collective exhibition drawing on Max Neuhaus’s work and legacy. The exhibition celebrates his career, fifty years after LISTEN, his manifesto-work that marked the beginnings of his experimentation inviting the audience to listen to the post-industrial soundscape of New York. Regarded as the “father” of sound installation, Neuhaus gave up his career as a percussionist and performer in the mid-1960s to focus on creating “aural topographies” – a term referring to installations within both the public sphere and the neglected areas of museums and galleries, giving rise to “social situations” in dialogue with daily life.

Max Feed brings together some thirty studies and drawings, some of which are on display for the first time, as well as a substantial body of archival documents. The selected works relate particularly to Neuhaus’s activity in France. Visitors will also be able to discover two rarely activated sound works: Silent Alarm Clock, an alarm clock created in 1979 that wakens the sleeper with silence, and Five Russians, a sound work originally designed in 1979 for the Clocktower Gallery in New York, reconstructed for the first time following only once before at the Outpost Gallery in 2015.

Max Feed seeks to address Neuhaus’s art, over and above the conventional practice of resorting to his drawings. Nine artists have therefore been invited to resonate with his pioneering work, mostly with new productions. This involves questioning the idea of legacy, not in the sense of an unequivocal transmission, but rather as a releasing of multiple processes, giving rise to a transformative and retroactive action. Indeed, the exhibition’s title touches upon the notion of feedback, taking the name from a device created by Neuhaus in 1966 (the Max-Feed) for experimenting at home with the effects of feedback on radio and television broadcasts.

Thus, Myriam Lefkowitz probes the listening body in greater depth with the aid of choreographic pulses, while Olivier Vadrot guides that body through the language of design and scenography. Trisha Donnelly silently explores the aural garden principle, while Nina Katchadourian reorients the experience of the urban environment by playing on the fragile boundary between natural and artificial sounds. The pieces by Seth Cluett are an invitation to set oneself likewise at the border between two areas, exterior and interior, by focussing on the translational relationship between territory, architecture and sensory experience. Oleg Tcherny slips into the folds of a seemingly motionless time in order to sway perception. Simon Ripoll-Hurier has us listen to listening itself; Sébastien Roux adds a further layer of refractions between different mediums and languages, and Matthieu Saladin casts doubt on what is fitting to the act of listening.

Through a multiplicity of sensorial experiences and mediums, Max Feed is an invitation to foster the ability to reorient attention. The exhibition is a commitment to a mindful practice acting on ordinary experience – whether in the transformation of perceptive landscapes or in the greater awareness of individual acts within a community.

NEW REALITIES

Moving Image and Alt Art Space Istanbul

Opening reception: Thursday, September 22, 18:00-20:00
Exhibition dates: Sept 23, 24 and 25, 2016
Opening Hours: Friday and Saturday, 13:00-21:00; Sunday 11:00-19:00

Alt Art Space hosts Moving Image Immersive Media’s special exhibition New Realities, featuring an international group of artists creating works in virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), referred to together as “immersive media.” Addressing concerns such as how we perceive the world around us and what it means to choose one’s own reality, the artists in New Realities are at the forefront of a new fine art medium. As such they are collectively defining the emerging metaphors, vocabularies and ethics involved, but doing so by showing the viewer amazing new worlds or new ways to see and think about what “reality” means.

The artists in the exhibition (plus the medium of their work) include: Claudia Hart (AR), John Craig Freeman (AR), Salvador Loza & Gibrann Morgado (VR), Christopher Manzione & Seth Cluett (VR), Will Pappenheimer & Zachary Brady (AR), Rachel Rossin (VR), Jakob Kudsk Steensen (VR), and Deniz Tortum (VR). The works in the exhibition include a range of immersive technologies, from geo-located AR works to motion-sensing VR works that respond to the viewers’ body movements. Many of the works have been created or modified specifically for this exhibition, including Bomonti and AR, by John Craig Freeman which works only in the bomontiada courtyard.

 

WEIRD REALITIES: Head-mounted Art && Code

Carnegie Mellon University

October 6-9, 2016 on the campus and vicinity of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

WEIRD REALITY: Head-Mounted Art && Code is a symposium dedicated to exploring new and independent visions for virtual, augmented and mixed realities. We aim to showcase independent and emerging voices, creative approaches, diverse and oftentimes marginalized perspectives, and imaginative and critical positions on VR/AR/MR that depart from typical tech fantasies and other normative, corporate media. The symposium features artist talks, speed presentations, technical workshops and demonstrations, discussion panels, a participant-driven unconference, and a free-to-the-public “VR Salon” exhibition which is presented in close cooperation with the concurrent 2016 VIA Festival.

Performance with Pauline Oliveros for 9 Evenings + 50 at Fridman Gallery 9/24 at 8pm

September 14, 2016

9-evenings-fridman

9 Evenings + 50

September 16-24, 2016

Co-produced by Julie Martin and Fridman Gallery.

Curators: Julie Martin, Regine Basha and Daniel Neumann

Fridman Gallery will present a concert series, 9 Evenings + 50, by three generations of composers and performers. The series recognizes and celebrates the 50th anniversary of 9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering – the music, dance and theater performances held in October 1966 at the 69th Regiment Armory on Lexington Avenue and 25th Street in New York City.

For the original 9 Evenings, 10 New York artists – John Cage, Lucinda Childs, Öyvind Fahlström, Alex Hay, Deborah Hay, Steve Paxton, Yvonne Rainer, Robert Rauschenberg, David Tudor, and Robert Whitman – worked for 10 months in collaboration with 30 engineers and scientists from Bell Laboratories, to develop technical equipment for their performances.

9 Evenings is now recognized as a major event of the 1960s, representing both the culmination of a decade of extraordinary activity and innovation in art, dance and music, and the beginning of a new era in which artists explored the use of technology in their work.

Our program features 24 groundbreaking artists – those who were active in 1960s and the younger generations working in the same tradition, continuing to use new technologies to create new instruments, new scores, and new collaborations.

The series is presented in association with ISSUE Project Room and Wave Farm.

From their website:

RESOUND
Thursday, September 8, – Friday, October 28, 2016
Simons Center Gallery

Curated by Lorraine Walsh
with Margaret Schedel and Joo Yun Lee

Featuring the work of Memo Akten, Sougwen Chung, Seth Cluett, Yoon Chung Han, Carsten Nicolai, Jess Rowland

Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 14, 2016
5:00 pm: Wine and Cheese Reception, Simons Center Gallery and Lobby
5:45 pm: Guest Speaker: Dr. David H. Shoemaker, Realizing Einstein’s Dream: Observing the
Signature of Dynamic Space-time, SCGP 103

The Simons Center Gallery is pleased to present RESOUND, an exhibition artistically inspired by the recent detection of gravitational waves in space.

The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) group, which is operated by researchers from Caltech and MIT with partner institutions worldwide, announced last February that they detected a gravitational wave vibration emanating from the collision and merger of two black holes a billion light years away. Translating the vibration into a sound, the scientists recorded a short chirp – a billion-year-old echo of the collision of those two black holes. This astonishing detection of gravitational waves confirms Albert Einstein’s prediction of ripples in the fabric of space-time in his 1915 general theory of relativity.

Workshop on Outdoor Acoustics at Wavefarm 9/10/16 12-4pm [ FREE ]

September 10, 2016

wavefarm-1
From the Wave Farm Website:
Sep 10, 2016: 12pm – 4pm

Wave Farm

5662 Route 23 | Acra, NY 12405 | 518-622-2598

Seth Cluett leads a workshop on acoustics from the perspective of developing sound works situated in the landscape. Beginning with a basic overview of what sound waves are and how they move, the workshop will focus on the implications of acoustics from an artistic perspective. No prior technical training is necessary for full participation. Email info@wavefarm.org to register for this free workshop.

American artist and composer Seth Cluett explores everyday actions at extreme magnification, examines minutae by amplifying impossible tasks, and explores the working of memory in forms that rethink the role of the senses in an increasingly technologized society. Creating work ranging from photography and drawing to installation, concert music, and critical writing, his “subtle…seductive, immersive” (Artforum) sound work has been characterized as “rigorously focused and full of detail” (e/i) and “dramatic, powerful, and at one with nature” (The Wire). The recipient of grants from Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Fund and Meet the Composer, his work has been presented internationally at venues such as The Whitney Museum, MoMA/PS1, Palais de Tokyo, GRM, and STEIM and is documented on Line, Sedimental, Notice, and Winds Measure recordings. In the fall of 2015 he joined the Music & Technology faculty at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey.

Michael Bullock, Sarah Hennies, and Seth Cluett perform at the Erstwhile Records AEU Festival

About the performance:

“This will be an “open-ended installation/performance” with the three of us each planning a mix of acoustic and electronic sounds, as well as mobile/spatial sound projection. The core of the event will be a two-hour trio improvisation, which will include other sound projections by all three of us to create an environment. So an element of installation as well, or at least of creating an environment-within-environment, which in turn houses the ensemble.”

two new works in Space Between the Skies opening 3/23/16 at apexart in NYC

March 22, 2016

space between the skies

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Space Between the Skies replaces the physical space of apexart with multiple virtual landscapes, either created from imagery collected at real world sites or from 3D constructed spaces. Hacked architectural and video game imagery, algorithmic collages, documentary footage of Wuhan, China, and dynamically enhanced audio/visual 360-degree responsive forest environments serve to transport the viewer beyond the limits of the physical gallery space.

By allowing viewers to occupy several environments simultaneously, these works experiment with cultivating multiple landscapes within the same physical space. Generated with 3D scanning technologies such as LIDAR/Photogrammetry, 3D modeling, and 360° recordings, these transposed landscapes question the supposed dichotomy between the real and the virtual.

Featuring work by:
Seth Cluett
John Craig Freeman
Ricky Graham
Christopher Manzione
Nicholas O’Brien
Rachel Rossin

Christopher Manzione

new radio work created for wave farm presented on the radia network

November 1, 2015

Cluett-work-image

 

 

A new radio work about auditory memory airs on the Radia network of experimental radio stations.

About the piece, I grew up rurally in the foothills of the Berkshire mountains on the eastern border of New York state and the states of Vermont and Massachusetts. Though I was at the periphery of three minor cities, each had colleges and local radio programming, leaving me at the center of the overlapping zones of their respective radio broadcast regions. When the whether would shift, the access would change; the pattern of expected scheduled programming was tethered to the randomness of the weather within the loose pattern of the four seasons. The material presented in this work represents common sound memories to each of the places I’ve lived in the last 7 years: the city of Troy in the state of New York, the city of Paris in France, the borough of Hightstown in central New Jersey, and the town of Oxford in the southwest corner of Ohio. Sirens, bells, rain, snow, wind, birds, footsteps, and traffic represent substantial areas of overlap between the soundscapes of each home. The work ebbs and flows between these geographic markers with the randomness of weather, finding pattern in the blurry boundaries of memory recorded as sound.
