more press, a live sound performance coming soon on your cd, a short video clip…and the prints go out
Recently I was asked by Animal NYC to contribute an article about my artistic process leading up to an audio / visual performance. The audio included in this performance will be included as part of the cd reward for Kickstarter backers.
This audio / visual performance was shown in a concert at Brooklyn venue The Silent Barn alongside Danish sound artist Jacob Kirkegaard, who also creates audio using field recordings gathered from Iceland and Greenland. This special performance was presented in conjunction with Soundings: A Contemporary Score at the Museum of Modern Art, in which Jacob’s work was featured. Lesley Flanigan also performed in this concert using handmade speaker feedback instruments and voice. Below is a recording of the work I presented that night.
This performance utilized an electro-acoustic glass sculpture representing ice and glaciers, amplified and manipulated with contact microphones and electronics, as well as field recordings gathered during my Arctic expedition. The sound from this performance will be utilized in the video below, which is a rough sketch of the content I will release as a DVD and send to some Kickstarter Backers.
I have begun the long process of contacting backers to send out prints. And for those of you patiently waiting for the CD or book, as mentioned in this update #10, I am sending out small images form the last two exhibitions you helped make happen; 4 X 4s, each one of a kind, that were shown in both Montreal at The Sight and Sound Festival, and in Brooklyn at Reverse Space.
The book and cd release are moving forward, slowly but surely - I will continue to keep you posted with my progress on those major works, and will share details on publication as they are confirmed. I will also be sure to share any other news, exhibitions and press that I receive as I further develop the work you all had a hand in creating.
Also, as promised, see the below documentation from my installation, Sila, at Eastern Bloc's Sight and Sound Festival in Montreal.
More news coming soon, and I hope you all enjoy seeing the results from my expedition!
