DWS171: burke jam – Chrysalis

“There is a similarity between the black voids of the universe and silence; each appears deceptively empty while in reality being quite full: of dark matter, of constant, unheard vibrations. In exploring these “vacant” spaces, we reach beyond our own perceptual limitations, and it is this reaching that allows us to continually refigure our world—a new brand of evolution.”
-Artist Sarah Nance

Chrysalis finds resonant harmonics and natural drone in environmental field recording. Experimental mic techniques, tuned reverbs, long-field captures of wind, tide, waterfall and forest all blur into roaring and contemplative space. Created and composed for quadraphonic installation and performance, the digital release has been re-configured for stereo and mastered by Lawrence English at 158 in Brisbane, AU.”
