the lines and contours of a new year

Sunny studio morning

January 10 - February 21, 2015 - opening 7-11pm
I contributed a field recording to Emily Gustafson's Picnic Basket project featured in the exhibit Picnics in the Polar Vortex, at Public Pool in Hamtramck, MI.

I have been making field recordings at Old Orchard Field, since moving here in the fall of 2013. Nothing fancy, just recordings made with my phone of night sounds, running water, bird songs, and the wind in the trees. I don't have a plan yet for all the recordings, I just enjoy capturing the sounds of the landscape. However, I picked up a Fostex field recorder last spring and plan to start experimenting with that this year and see if I can mix and weave various field recordings together into a single soundscape. I have thinking a lot about sound, ecology, and silence. This recent interview of Gordon Hempton was inspiring and worrisome as the last wild places begin to be drowned out by human generated noise.

 I am happy to be part of this huge group show of amazing and talented RI artists. NetWorks is a project developed and produced by Dr. Joseph A.
