some free marfa music...
it was about a year ago that stephen vitiello and i were lucky enough to participate in an exhibition in marfa texas called the marfa sessions. part of the exhibition was inside the marfa ballroom, but many of the installations were site specific and out in the landscape. along with our installation, we had the incredible opportunity to do a performance inside one of the large military barracks that are part of the chinati foundation and filled with a beautiful series of reflective aluminum sculpture by donald judd. stephen and i performed live inside the space, while bob bielecki mixed the sound that moved from interior microphones to speakers outside the space. the audience was outside, listening to the speakers, and essentially seeing us as if inside of a fishbowl. as the sun set, reflections upon the glass walls shifted, light changed, and our visual presences appeared and disappeared amongst the landscape and the sculpture.
as i was about to leave for marfa, a stereo mix of our performance, as well as one of our rehearsals, has been made available for free on ubuweb. all of the music was improvised using a variety of electronic and acoustic sounds.
