Tracks: Building 8, Eastworks, Easthampton, MA

Along with guest collaborator Tovah Rudawski, Building 8 was turned into a big, breathing sound piece. The warehouse was the site of five sound installations, as well as other auditory embellishments, on each of its floors, all permeating and resonating throughout. Live sounds, dark rooms, lots of amps, swinging mics, rattling cages, tapes upon tapes, roving rants, field recordings, and echoing elevators. Guest participants included Brendan Mahoney (TALK) and the band Bella's Bartok (TELEPHONE). Special thanks to Brian Jones, Buzzy Napoli, Michael Gundlach, Robin Mandel, Chelsea Granger, Christopher Hellwig, Brendan Mahoney, and Bella's Bartok for all the help, equipment, and images.

A short video description of the event, and each installation, is below. A long-form experimental video doc of the resulting sounds and images can be found here: Gathered Tracks
