Listen (excerpt, 6:00)

Video and multi-channel sound installation with artist Christine Wallers. A meditation on the cusps of darkness and light, sound and silence. The visuals are projected sequences of still photographs of cloudless sky, taken in the moments just before darkness and dawn. The sound is derived from a 40-minute field recording made on the beach at Kalaloch, Washington as night visibly descended. The sound was processed as in the Chamber Music series, but using a very different kind of source recording.
