Then there were two.
Backgrounds for a sound art piece. Racing against the clock to finish three 40” x 40” canvases.
Performed live remixes of the WNYC eyewitness account radio reports during the 9/11 attacks. This served as a jumping off point for conversations about how this country has never processed 9/11 culturally, resulting in a lost decade and a lost people. These conversations took place with studio visitors at Open Studio Days 2013.
The installation consisted of looping video of a man running through a park with his arms stretched out like a plane. Behind where I sat was a giant print of a photo of a 2002 performance piece, protesting the state of American politics.
I used a DD6 and a DD7 delay pedals to grab small samples of sound to loop and layer and an Alesis Metavox vocoder to degrade and music-fy additional samples. I plugged my Kaossilator into an Octave pedal to give it some depth and grit and made low musical accompaniment to the samples that I was processing live.
Audio samples were recorded and will be posted in future.
Got my hands on a Pico projector and rephotographed images from videos. Love it. What an awesome little machine.
