Self-portrait as a Meditation on Someone Else
KORY REEDER
IHab147

It was never my intention with this piece to demonstrate the sounds of a specific place: multiple locations and environments are juxtaposed throughout this piece, interspersed with quiet tones, noise, etc. to create a subtle but surreal portrait. It is specific in that a place is heard, but simultaneously abstract - emotional, nearly sentimental at times, but also barren or spacious. Sometimes noisy moments of the natural and designed environment are placed on top of each other, or a two silent rooms are heard together to create something new. There is nothing “pure” about this piece - rarely is a sound truly heard in isolation - but this is also the experience of memory, and our selective, yet never clear recollections of past.
