when the crickets hesitate (2021)

Speakers, organic matter, and signal cable cover the gallery floor evoking our techno-organic natureculture. An evolving soundscape of field recordings from land, air, and water in SW Ontario mixes sense and nonsense of human and nonhuman sound – bugs and birds, motors, wind, thunder, and waves – processed to distort their identity. The sonic becomings present an uncertain ecology of fluctuating forces and affect. The listener is immersed in a sonic space that is familiar and unfamiliar, located and dislocating. Sound intermingles with the moving images of Eeva Siivonen’s video in a sensorial environment of ambiguous presence and absence and absence.
