These five pieces, created over a period of five days in May - June 2021, were composed from field recordings, detuned piano, modular and software synths, and found objects. They were originally made to accompany the Auxart 1 installation by Philip Krohn, and were later (re)mixed to stereo.
Recorded and layered as long improvisational takes, these pieces represented a somewhat new way of working - a kind of sonic diary that captured a particular moment in time, including its weather, insects and birds. Accepting of accidents, embracing small gestures, embedding accretions of time. Lightly edited into loose forms, the five sections wander slowly across a landscape, and sometimes stumble across a surprising shape.
