33rpm vinyl phonograph record
side 1 : ( ) autecicadas
side 2 : ( ) ocean_db_crash_nue
“autecicadas” was created with field recordings as a source. The sound of cicadas is mixed with an ambient pulse of processed environmental sound. “ocean_db_crash_nue” consists of layers of found sound and ambient noise that is sequenced to create drones while the computer skips as a result of being overwhelmed by data which fades into an ethereal ambient crescendo. Some copies of this recording have been given to turntablists as a source to deconstruct / reconstruct in improvisational performances. The sound of the record will change and disintegrate—pops and scratches will emerge in the recording over time. Each play of the record will be a sonic event that is unique to the environment, device, and context in which it is played. Signed and numbered by the artist.
