A Raising

a show at Ditch Projects in Oregon

opening April 3- a sound installation in a old mill turned gallery operated by Rob Smith, Donald Morgan and more good folks.

The building straddles a creek and a microphone is set down in one of the holes in the floor that is open through the concrete to the water. The sound was reprocessed to generate a raised waterline of sorts in the space and a second mic was in the gallery to contribute an ebb and flow of additional feedback in the sound. I tried to channel Tartovsky, particularly Stalker as I have been really interested in his films the continued but transforming use of water as metaphor in his films from Rublev to Stalker.

I also had the chance to play live with my friend Rob Smith at the opening for the first time in a while...
