Feb 13, 2017

happy lupercalia everyone     “European music is based on the artificial sound of the note and the (tone) scale; it opposes the brutal and objective sonority of the world. As a result of an unbreakable convention European music is obliged from the beginning to express a subjectivity. It seems to fight the sonority of the outside world, like a sensitive being resisting the...

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...
