Marker | Jeremy Bible & Jason Henry
Processed Field Recordings & Electro-Acoustic Sound Art Collage



SYNOPSIS: Marker is the first in a two part album concept for the 
Gruenrekorder label by Canton, Ohio, US based sound artists Jeremy Bible 
& Jason Henry. Marker combines multiple elements in order to create 
constructed fictional environments, realities, locations, and 
atmospheres. Field recordings captured from the northeast Ohio region 
and often times in and around the individual artist’s homes, processed 
and clean, play a large part, alongside treated and processed acoustic 
instruments and subtle touches of electronic sound design.

CONCEPT: The two albums, Marker and Magnet, were created with the 
intention of being experienced both individually and consecutively 
allowing for up to four unique listening contexts. It is also 
recommended that the pieces which the two albums are comprised of are 
combined and experienced in a random manner creating infinite listening 

PROCESS: The sound elements presented on both Marker & Magnet were 
recorded, composed, performed, collected, and organized by the artists 
individually over a period of time for the intention of a single 
impromptu & improvised collaborative recording session. Following this 
‘content collection’ period the artists met for a lengthy recording 
session at Jeremy Bible’s Experimedia Studio1 where these individual 
sound elements were arranged, processed, and mixed by the two artists in 
an improvisational manner under conditions of half sleep like states of 
subconscious focus. The elements of surprise introduced in a 
collaborative improvisational recording scenario play a large role in 
the duo’s process and resulting sound works.
