Vibration Sensitive

September 5, 2012

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.

Kerry Ware and I have settled on a conceptually and visually restrained version from multiple sketches we explored over the summer for the Nautical Miami unique 7″ scheduled to release January, 2013. The sketch is serving as a model for the production of 250, limited edition, color pencil and water color on hand made paper, white vinyl 7” that is taking place until their release and thereafter as we continue to take time to produce new work. A glimpse into the sonic attributes of the unique 7″ is available at Nautical Miami Bandcamp where you will find other projects as they become available.

Unique, Limited Edition Nautical Miami Release 01 Coming

July 18, 2012

Kerry Ware and I have begun to sketch ideas for what will become 250 unique, limited edition 7” vinyl bonus tracks to accompany our first Nautical Miami downloadable release. They will be available to the first 250 downloads. Each vinyl 7” will come with a unique visual composition made of color pencil and water color on hand made paper.  The unique visual pieces are designed alluding to cycles or calendars. They are an embellishment of detailed climatic life in Miami, FL in that they appear to be informed by an elasticity of wet and dry micro-rhythms. The audio composition itself alludes to our two yearly seasons: a wet season and a dry season and are comprised of recorded walks, transducer systems on reflective surfaces, filters and processing.
