I have used this website to host pictures of my visual art, then images of my lighting designs, but sound recording has always been a hobby of mine. Since I was seven I have been fascinated with recording moments. We live in a world oversaturated with images, and it has changed us. We skim the surface, judge instantly what we think we experience with only one of our many senses. Listening is something we need to do more. So, this will be a sound journal of life moments. I have lost several files, but will try and recollect them, then post them here.
"Girl 1-5" is a compilation of my daughter's voice from age 1 to age 5. It's a 9 minute track, with only one noticeable cut, so it's hard to tell at what point she's matured.
On a trip to Niagara Falls a few years ago, I got the opportunity to ride on one of those boats that goes right up to the falls. It was intense. LOTS of water creating a heavy mist. Everyone was trying to take photos, but I instead did a sound recording. I like this track because it makes me think of how tourism tries to package the experience of a place, and how we process moments like that.
