Sound


Under (2007)
Sound




The two sound pieces, Under (2007) and Empty (2007) are from a series of sound compositions, created from field recordings of a specific space, whether it is my home, my daily commute to work or my studio. While the sounds may not be recognizable, they are hallmarks of spaces that in inhabit daily. I am interested in harvesting the sounds that are below our audible perception, and those that are often overlooked. By manipulating, multiplying, layering and creating new recordings from these sources, the original space becomes fractured, adopting an alternative form, and becoming newly empowered. Its physicality is deconstructed with this mass’s remnants - the memory of activity that was once within it. This transition, from the physical world to a boundless space, in order to form meditative and contemplative expanses. Components slowly reveal themselves over time, drifting back and forth in space. It is no longer about paint and canvas, but about interval of looking, of dwelling. Through the creation and transmission of these sound recordings, a new temporal space is carved, for viewers to explore within the folds of their mind. By re-building a space through sound, a new mass-less identity is created viscerally, echoing the degradation of memory through experience.
