Richard Garet's approach to working with Letting Go focused on articulating the emission of materials with sonic properties as both source and instrument. Such materials were; amplified EMF emissions, modified audiocassettes, dysfunctional tape players, cracked media, sonification of light, circuit boards, and computer processing. Over the years his work has evolved from laptop playing to a more hands on type of approach, focusing on sound and material that could encompass more tactile malleability and less computer playback.
This work was created during the Covid 19 pandemic in Garet’s studio in Queens, NY.
