I am really happy to announce that two of my films will be screened at the Blood of a Poet Festival in Latvia. This event is organized and curated by Poet and Sound Artist Jelena Glazova. Thanks to Una Lee and Peter Wullen for notifying me about this and for our collaboration on Black Canary.
The program is here Reading Dream within a Dream can be viewed here
This is my first screening in Latvia! Thanks Jelena!
Una Lee has had a very busy summer! Besides being part of Lynlee with me, she has managed to put out two superb new releases. Both discs offer many aural rewards after a few listens. Mindwandering is released on the withering-trees label and features Hyo Jung Kim on Violin and voice. Here is what they say :
“The term ‘ Stream of consciousness’ or ‘Train of thoughts’ would be the best way to describe the idea, by which this piece ‘Mindwandering’ was made. It’s a rather longer sound collage of over 30 different found sound tracks and some field recordings of improvised music, which were used and manipulated to accompany the infinitely wandering mind.”
There are some wonderful passages here that masterfully blend sound art, improv, and field recordings into one organic whole. The link is here to listen and download. Check out some other works as well by the label, which looks to be quite promising.
Una’s other release is called Static Flux, here raindrops are recorded in different positions and situations to create a trancelike meditation on the percussive sounds of rain.
For the last week or so, this has been my main listen . It’s Fantastic!
Una Lee will be screening A Rolling Mind and a few of here own innovative works at the wonderful dotolim in Seoul, South Korea. Thanks Una! If you are in Seoul pay a visit. Here is a link to the event
