In Residence is an ongoing work in-progress exploring the relationship between sound, narrative, and location. It is a series of experiments in various forms: audiovisual performance, installation, and CD/DVD publication constructed from photographs and recordings, collected during three artist residencies in fall of 2007. Through digital manipulation, the source materials are transformed; a translation of experience, from the literal to the romantic.
In Residence 6 focuses specifically on the rain soaked month spent at the Espy Foundation residency in Oysterville, WA, October 2007. Using the steady drone of the constant rain as a point of departure, the work explores the emotional response to this prolonged period of rain through the construction of a melancholic and meditative narrative.
The audio work presented here is an abridged stereo version of the original 4.1 dolby surround installation presented at Las Cienegas Projects in Los Angeles, CA July 25 – September 5, 2009. The cover image is a cropped still from the accompanying video portion of the installation.
