First presented as a durational audiovisual performance presented at Human Resources in Los Angeles (CA), Snowfall explores the hushed stillness and isolation sometimes experienced during a snowstorm. Presented over 6 hours, the audience was allowed to come and go as they please. This afford the viewer a more personal experience with the piece through the dispersion of the audience. Snowfall was constructed using photographs and field recordings collected at the Jentel Artist Residency outside Banner, WY in February 2010.
Snowfall is presented here as a one hour composition. This version is also composed to work well played on repeat for a more immersive experience and to afford the listener the same freedom the original performance did.
