A Scape (2021)

A Scape, 2021

This album is a small collection of moments from my recorded life and travel. It’s a bit like the context of a diary without the substance. Sounds and spaces that captured me, held me and recordings I revisit over and over again. For now, it’s limited to open spaces, spaces with movement, life and (sometimes quiet) action. I may add to it or release another collection of more detailed movements, close ups and voices

Accumulation Over Time (2020)

Accumulation Over Time (X, Y, Z), 2020

Commissioned by Constellations (2020)
Reimagined with video and subtitles for LUCIA festival and Radio Papesse (2020)

Accumulation Over Time is a ‘simultaneous-series’ consisting of three audio features that can be played together in duplicate or triplicate, changing the landscape of the piece(s).

Accumulation Over Time was originally commissioned by Constellations audio. And later appeared in LUCIA festival, where a video-based subtitled version was created. The video obscures the subtitles to mirror the text’s obscurity in sound.
