maps and shadows
In this soundscape installation, recorded sounds from the Sechelt Gravel Pit have been “sculpted”, remixed and layered to create a drone-like sound object broadcasted on a 4-speaker setup. Both the framing and the specific context of this project become the relevant aspect of the not-assertive quality of any possible “message”. Listening here is not about any sentimental reception. The immediate and mediated reality of the place exists in fact autonomously from any kind of imposed directionality. The sound is yes enhanced but not decorated, and the enhancement contributes to the creation of shifting and variable perceptions of and within the place.
