sound, field recording

As a meditation on home, this composition incorporates location recordings intended to highlight the strangeness . Sounds include electromagnetic recordings from blinking basement lights and a water heater, steps along different materials, transmitted spaces with use of the intercom system, and voice:

“Floating—the tips of my toes grazing the ground. Almost, but not quite. Grounding. Getting to know the slope of crooked floors, the rattle of steamy bones, the smell of each corner. Imprinting on each other—creating new patterns, guided by floorboard grooves.” — Alyssa Irizarry

Running time: 21.30 minutes.

Recorded in Cambridge, MA and originally appearing as a 2-channel installation for Non-Event’s 2018 Showcase @ The Yard (Handcock Tower) in Boston, MA.
