Above is a photograph I took during 2006. It is a birds-eye-view of my table top while making vibration sensitive microphones. I use them to produce post-arranged sound work. I have typically worked with them out-of-doors and on occasion have used them to explore acoustic phenomenon in architecture, such as liminal zones in buildings, and structural engineering, such as bridges . They are delicate and break easily; however, the seismic delicacy in these microphones are a pleasure to note cognition in life forms and forms brought to life. I make them in order to merge with my environment and later post-arrange; pass along from one experience to the next. The process of recording for me is a way to merge with my environment and become part of an organization already present. Never to reach an end, my records are points of departure. The moment I record, phonographic or photographic, my record becomes part of a relay organized as a network of processes interacting to reach a beginning.
