Description: A loop-based composition for piano, guitar, custom made sine wave records, &
three turntables. Designed to create an environment and be performed for an indefinite duration, it was first performed during my 2016 Open Studios visual art exhibition at The Pacific Felt Factory
in San Francisco.
ABOUT THIS PROJECT: This is the first phase of a project supported by the San Francisco Arts Commission
to create three phonograph-like apparatuses that generate sounds from a collection of interchangeable, revolving sculptures based on geological landscapes of California. They will function as both (1) instruments played in a musical performance, and (2) works of public art that invite participation in a lobby, airport, or museum.
A collaboration with San Francisco musician Danny Clay
, the project will conclude with performances at the Center for New Music
during the 2016-17 season.
