installation/composition, developed whilst on artists residency at camac arts centre, marnay-sur-seine, france

exhibited:

chic art fair, cite de la mode et du design, paris, november 2011

forest fire is the recording of a fire, discovered in the forest whilst exploring the landscape.  the sound clicks, pops and crackles.  without a visual reference, these sounds become hard to identify and ambiguous as to whether the recording is a natural sound or noise created by a low quality recording.

subtle glitches, loops and tonal changes have been highlighted within the editing of this piece which give the original high quality recording a sound reminiscent of a damaged record. 

this piece was originally intended to be exhibited on an old record player, which belonged to the radio studio at the residency, camac.
