Really excited that Lynlee (Una Lee and myself) will be involved with ISSTA 2020: sonic practice now . The event takes place on August 14th and 15. I am not sure what my virtual role will be in this event, but I am sure Una will do something wonderful.
All of the details for registration are here You can also visit ISSTA here. More soon.
The Miniature Landscape Correspondence series is an audio visual
collaboration between Una Lee and Chris H Lynn . Each correspondence or observation is composed of two shots, one from each
continent. The films are a homage to the Lumière brothers and the early days of
cinema. In addition, these unassuming landscape moments (shots, views)
coupled with a steady visual rhythm will hopefully reflect the direct experience of the everyday
Here is the second extract from the Factory Journal project-
A dialogue in sound and image with Simone Weil’s seminal Factory Journal. This is ongoing and still very open. Thanks to Hu for her lovely rendition.
Thanks to Peter W for sending me this track to rework. I just added a bit of minimal piano and split the verse to add space. Big thanks to everyone one who was involved in putting this together.
Have a listen below.
The Black Art by Anne Sexton
A woman who writes feels too much,
those trances and portents!
As if cycles and children and islands
weren’t enough; as if mourners and gossips
and vegetables were never enough.
She thinks she can warn the stars.
A writer is essentially a spy.
Dear love, I am that girl.
A man who writes knows too much,
such spells and fetiches!
As if erections and congresses and products
weren’t enough; as if machines and galleons
and wars were never enough.
With used furniture he makes a tree.
A writer is essentially a crook.
Dear love, you are that man.
Never loving ourselves,
hating even our shoes and our hats,
we love each other, precious, precious.
Our hands are light blue and gentle.
Our eyes are full of terrible confessions.
But when we marry,
the children leave in disgust.
There is too much food and no one left over
to eat up all the weird abundance.

Poet and sound artist Peter Wullen invited me to do a rework of the Jean Tinguely @ Kanal Brut incidental music track he recorded.
Here is his description:
“Incidental music recorded 06.04.2018 at about 3pm @ the Jean Tinguely installation L’enfer, un petit début during the opening weekend of the new art museum Kanal Brut – Pompidou in Brussels.”
