Collaborative sound installation with Rene Barge, created by exchanging recordings through the mail between the far corners of the USA. The sonic materials were all of domestic origin: Rene's sounds were recordings of things and moments around his home in Miami that carried memory and meaning for him; mine were drones derived from a field recording made in an empty house in Seattle. He sent me his material, I added mine and sent it back. Rene built the little table and bench to create an intimate space in the gallery that encouraged attentive listening. This was the first piece I made using the techniques later developed in the Chamber Music series.
