An Hour is a Sea

recorded on headphones in my basement, Baltimore, MD, 3/30/2020
delay pedals, field recordings, mics, samples

Joe and I haven't been in the same room for nearly a decade. For my portion of Democracy I wanted to channel the ghosts of former rooms and sounds we've shared and made together. These sonic spirits occasionally appear in the piece as well as a brief encounter with Pauline Oliveros.

My friendship with Joe was formed by improvising and making music. When we met in 2004, we didn't know anything about each other, we made sounds together instead. "An Hour is a Sea" imagines my responses to what Joe might do if we were together again in the same room now, here.

thanks: Joe, Jon, Matt, Vanessa, Taku, Beatrice for helping this project come into the world!
