Kate Carr ~The Thing Itself and Not the Myth

The Thing Itself and Not the Myth alludes to a powerful poem by Adrienne Rich called “Diving into the Wreck”, which immerses the reader into the depths of exploratory self-transformation. Kate Carr has named each piece after lines and words

Cheryl E. Leonard ~ Watershed

Is it cold where you are?  It’s 7F here, which makes the cold weather recordings of Cheryl E. Leonard a perfect accompaniment.  Watershed is active and enthralling, existing on the invisible reef between field recording and improvisation.  On the surface, this is a

Bruno Duplant & David Vélez ~ our seasons reverse

Francisco López ~ Sonic Fields Vlieland
