Unbalanced, Disintegrating...

@ SEAMUS (Society for Electroacoustic Music)  conference 2022


In this piece, I explore our constant struggle to rebalance the natural world, seeking to fix problems of which we are often a cause. I therefore attempt to synthesize myself into these animated collage environments, both by projecting on my physical form and by meshing my own improvisations into the sonic space. The raw materials for "Unbalanced, Disintegrating..." were mined from the USDA Forest Service archive,where I found documentation from the past hundred years on natural and man made decay in the environment (bark eating beetles, tent caterpillars, fires, pollution etc). I enlarged this documentation into different forms of projected material- a moving collage landscape and a smaller projected quilt, worn on my skirt.
