plantsATnight

Collected and processed audio/visual materials while wandering within a dissolving forest.

plantsATnight is the result of a collaborative process. The artists collected and processed audio/visual materials while wandering within a dissolving forest. They found an impenetrable leaf. Momentary samples of overgrown machinery. Systems terminating and flourishing in one.

I scored this video project in collaboration with A. Bill Miller and Rollin Leonard.

For the sound/audio, I composed a sound collage using Ableton software and a TC-Helicon VoiceLive Touch. The piece was largely improvised in real time, with some post-production work in response to the project’s collaborative process. Inspired by the enigmatic and cinematic, samples came from sources as varied as field recordings, concrete sounds, minimal music, Hollywood films, as well as recognizable standards from pop music’s star-making machinery.
