Here is an excerpt from a new project I am currently working on. This is a site specific audiovisual journey that has kept me busy the last month or so. This endeavor will feature landscape studies, field recordings, piano/objects , and super 8 films. More details in the coming days.
This is a work-in progress title.
The sounds were played on the Chance Piano
Very excited to report the Miniature Landscape Correspondence with Una Lee will be screened in Italy for the Soundscapes and Sound Identities festival and symposium. Una will also be performing her own piece as well.This is going to be great!

A wonderful time at the opening of the Foot Notes: On the Sensation of Tone exhibition curated by Alastair Noble. A special and heartfelt thanks to the Gallery staff and owner Steven Rand. The attendance was high from start to finish and everyone seemed intrigued by all of the work on display. It was also a great opportunity for me to experience and engage in other sound works by Ed Osbourne, Chris Watson, Annea Lockwood,Robert Macfarlane and David Rothenberg. I definitely will be going back! The exhibition runs until March 7, if you are in New York, check it out!
I am really excited that the ongoing Miniature Landscape Correspondence project that Una Lee and I created is going to be part of this wonderful sound event curated by Alistair Noble. Here is the link and some very insightful text on the Miniature Landscape Correspondence:
Another international venture is built with field recordings, the source of the raw unedited audio-visual postcards or Miniature Landscape Correspondences (2013), a collaborative project between Una Lee in South Korea and Chris H. Lynn in the United States. This again relies on a two-way call-and-response process of on-site audio recordings, coupled with a steady visual and audio rhythm. These reflect the direct experience of the everyday from each vantage point of the correspondent. The unassuming public spaces are captured to relay an intimate association for a private missive between friends. Short, without text, just two video shots with recording of urban or natural sites, no narrative or texts are recorded; it is purely the transmission of an atmosphere by each party. Here, poetic moments of image and sound convey all. Initially, current social networking sound bytes are conjured up with these very short audio visual videos, however they more closely resemble 19th century epistles between fellow poets. Once again the ruminations of Coleridge come to mind in which his communiqués transform his reader through poetic verse.

Here is an excerpt of a new Lynlee track called 877 miles. The entire track will be released in late February.
877 miles is the distance between Belfast, Ireland and Montpellier, France. Field recordings from both cities are featured in the track.
