Greetings from Berlin, I hope you’re enjoying your early fall /
late summer days and nights. I had a wonderful time in Iceland. The
other artists at Listhus were very inspiring. I got to take many walks
in the mountains, fields, shores, towns and volcanic plains taking in
the otherworldly sights and sounds of that lovely country.
I recently uploaded one of the tracks built around fields recordings from Iceland. You can listen here on Soundcloud:
My travels continue this month with a residency in Berlin at the prestigious soundart gallery/venue Liebig12. The space has a really great sound system where I will be working on some mediation / sleep music and Echozoo
sounds. Also as part of my residency I’ll be taking part in three
concerts (many with my old friend, Bilwa, from Philadelphia who lives in
Berlin now) and a Deep Listening workshop. If you’re in Berlin it would
be great to see you!
Here are the dates of the events:

CITIES AND MEMORY PROTEST SOUND MAP
I created a sound collage piece that I recorded at a Black Lives Matter Protest in Philadelphia for the Cities and Memory Protest Sound Map.
This sound map is an amazing collection of over 200 recordings and
remixes from protests all around the world. The project has been
featured on Wired, BBC, The Guardian, Mashable and dozens of other news
outlets. Check it out!
http://citiesandmemory.com/protest/ Protest and Politics is the first global mapping of the sounds of protest, demonstration and political activism.
Sourcing field recordings from our own archive as well as from dozens of field recordists around the world, we assembled a database of protest sounds over summer 2017, and opened this up to artists and musicians to recompose and reimagine, bringing to bear their own experiences and memories onto these sounds.
You can explore the documentary field recordings of protests, spend time in the alternative sound world created by their reimagined counterparts, or flip freely between the two as you choose.
MIXES FROM THE FIELD
Sharon and I are ramping up our Field Recording, Deep Listening, Sonic Works project Mixes from the Field
