NODAME, QUE








In Montreal, with Diane and her family nearby. Something within me shifted here, and on that trip. I am so grateful.

THEE

One went to the door of the Beloved and knocked.
A voice asked, "Who is there?"
He answered, "It is I."
The voice said, "There is no room for Me and Thee."
The door was shut.
After a year of solitude and deprivation he returned and knocked.
A voice from within asked, "Who is there?"
The man said, "It is thee."
The door was opened for him.

SEQUENCE


I was invited by the thieves editors to be a part of their Sequence Project, where two randomly chosen photographers are asked to share a photo subjectively related to each other. I was selected to choose a photograph in response to one by Nyncke Ernst. You can view it here.

OPENSIGNAL


Documentation of the OPENSIGNAL Festival that happened as part of Brown University's MEME program was uploaded this summer, and I have finally remembered to share it here. Information and video footage of the installation that I was a part of can be found on the MEME's Vimeo page here and here. I am so grateful to have been invited to be a part of it (1 among 85 musicians).

The 7 minute piece that I wrote, Somerset Repeater was expanded into a 30 minute piece for the Les Soirees Dessinees installation in Paris this summer. It wrote was inspired by Ham radio communications that my husband and I discovered this winter. I am planning to create a series of 30 minute pieces based on Ham radio repeater stations around the country and world. This is the first time that I have done any composing on the computer. The 7 minute piece can be found on my Soundcloud here.

LES SOIREES DESSINEES


A 30 minute piece of mine, entitled "Somerset Repeater", is a part of this unique installation at Galerie AREA in Paris, France. Graphic designers will be responding live to the compositions. I'm so excited about this, and loved creating the composition for it. The piece is inspired by, and samples, ham radio transmissions in the eastern United States. 

I'm late in publishing this information, but I hope that some of you can make it nonetheless. I'm so disappointed that I can't witness it myself. More information about the event can be found here and here, and information about the record label that has curated it, Tsuku Boshi, can be found here.

(Also, I'm a little concerned that perhaps my eyes are going, given the poor focus of most of these photographs. Apologies.)
