Four-track mobile sound installations for a group of cyclists
From 2014 to 2018 I organized and created several 45’ mobile sound installations scored for a multitude of cyclists. Each cyclist would choose one of four complementary prepared tracks to play on portable speakers to create a multiplicitous and dynamic soundscape, constantly transforming as the space between and around the cyclists changed.
First curated bike event with original music. Collaboration between Leif Steenson, Mike Russo, Stinson Seuser, and Laura Brackney.
Music from the Nightmare Piano, my original unprepared piano (experimented with from 2012 to October 2015). Additional sounds provided by Josh Ronsen’s cats , Patchen Preston and François Minaux.
Music from Leif Steenson, Mike Russo, Stinson Seuser, Laura Brackney, organized and assembled by Mike Russo.
Co-curated with George Pasterk for COTFG’s annual New Media Art and Sound Summit. Our goal in accepting recorded submissions was to present an imaginary landscape consisting of shifting pieces that our collaborators believe represent the sonic identity of their location. The theme of this sound installation explored location and perception of environment, dislocation and serendipitous occurrences.
