When did you start working with sound, and who were your references at the time?
Can you say something about the two pieces you will present at Helicotrema 2017?
The first recording is a field recording of a Tobacco auction, the auctioneer was Chuck Jordan, and it was recorded in North Coraline. Chuck is a bit of a national treasure – he is one of the last active tobacco auctioneer left in the country. The second recording is a field recording of oil flare recorded in the city of Williston in North Dakota. I processed the recording through a python script that I’d written, which keeps applying reverb effect to the recording until it distorts.
What are you working on, at the moment?
I am working on a new rendition of my Muted Situations series of sound-based work, for the Biennale of Sydney. I am also programming a bunch of “physically impossible trumpets” for a multi-channel sound installation, for a show at the Guggenheim in 2018.
