you haven't heard from me since my visit to the u.s. in the fall - 
thanks to all of you who managed to come out to a gig! i have now 
completed my relocation to southeastern estonia, where i am spending 
this winter in the small village of mooste, keeping the fires burning 
(literally) at moks (http://www.moks.ee). a few recent developments to 
tell you about...


::: murmer - 4 spaces, released online by soundwalk-editions :::

i have had a recent short piece published online, on the 2nd issue of 
the soundwalk editions blog alongside radiomentale, steve roden, and aki 
onda (and what fine company it is!). the piece is entitled '4 spaces' - 
from the blog:

"During a recent tour of the northeastern United States I made a 
collection of recordings inside the spaces in which I would perform. The 
individual recordings were to be used as the starting point of the 
performance in the same location, a slow sonic zooming-in to the 
self-same space shared with an audience, and an experiment in natural 
resonant feedback caused by playing the sound of a space back into 
itself. A handful of the spaces were particularly interesting, and I 
collect those here to highlight the notion of no space being neutral, 
and of each having it’s own living, breathing character. The spaces we 
hear here are St Stephen’s Church in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, the 
front lobby of the Baker Center for the Arts at Muhlenberg College, 
Allentown, Pennsylvania, and the gallery space at the Pyramid Atlantic 
in Washington DC. At either end of this collection is a different kind 
of space, and one much closer to home: this is the sound of my mother’s 
backyard, on the edge of marshland in Abington, Massachusetts, with my 
personal favorite late-night sound of distant passing trains."
