Borderland Soundwalks, Soundings & Sound Ideas

If you are in Tucson on November 4 -- or plan to be -- there will be special borderland soundwalk offered by the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA).

I will leave the details for the link below if interested, but in a nutshell: we'll visit a handful of sonorous border sites to engage the expansive rural and urban militarized landscape in listening, documentation and curation practices.

The day will conclude back at MOCA with an opportunity for participants to share in the Great Hall sounds, images and thoughts from the days activities.

The day's transportation, food & drink will also be provided.

In other news:

Two recordings:

96 Deaths: Audio documentation of a live performance of the score Until There Are No More Deaths by members of The Ambos Project and myself. The title of the piece reflects the number of migrant deaths in Southern Arizona as of September 1, 2017. As of September 26 the number has risen to 102. It was a powerful and emotional experience as can be heard in the recording. Expect further documentation of this performance by The Ambos Project in the months ahead. There is no charge for this recording, but if you feel so inclined, please consider making a donation to a borderland humanitarian organization of your choosing.

The Migration Of Xolotl ~ Past The Spectral Wall: This recording marks a new direction in the application of Mauerkrankheit style techniques used for amplifying the border wall to electric guitar. The recordings spectral images --- as seen on the cover --- were created by playing music which would closely resemble sections of the wall and militarized zone found along the border in Northern Sonora, Mexico and Southern Arizona, United States.
