Cat Bones in the Flower Beds

this feels good

Listening Hour

This is exciting!! Projections from my thesis project paired with a warped and tweaked live recording of a reading I did last tuesday with Maggie Philipsborn at the Alexiteric Tea Clinic in Oakland!! Maggie was playing the hang and halo, I was reading. I love the idea of this being another way to access the poems in Listening Hour (a book length project of poems I am working on). To me, this combination of moving image/color/and sound are where the poems live/come from/shape shift into.

It’s been a minute.

Let the experiments/process continue.

Going to post some projects I have floating around that need homes.

It feels nice to have them all in one place.

This is what I’ve been up to:)

Dress at the teen shop

Period Sound Art

Blind Spots

Bible Stories

These were mostly made to teach myself how to use recording devices and sound editing programs. But I feel very strongly about the second piece. I used an avatar voice engine to translate several poems I wrote about the annunciation into arabic. What a crazy story that needs to be re-told! Real talk! The next step to this project will involve feeding the translations back into the engine using another language, eventually looping back to english to see how the story/sounds change over time. I like thinking of the trillions of layers of translation that saturate nearly every story/myth humans hold onto. Every single word/image we hold sacred/attach meaning/believe to be true is just a translation of another word/image. This spiral baffles me. Even sound and color are translated!! It makes me crazy to think about.
