I spent a decade of my formative life working, dreaming and promising myself a life in New York City. I grew up in a suburb in upstate New York in a neighborhood without any streetlights. I imagined a world where opportunity for artists especially - by trade and by mind - were at peace with the differences in which they viewed the world. Where production and life coincide, where everything happens first, and if you're lucky, happens to you.
I'll record them with a tape recorder under my arm for my younger self, as a humbled reminder to never take my presence and place in NYC for granted. White noise is always louder when you know you've made it home.
EVERY DAY SOUNDS DIFFERENT HERE.
(But these sound best with headphones on.)
These are mono recordings, cut to into new stereo recordings that pan between left and right sides of the listener's speakers.
01: "NOW'S THE DAY"
02: "DUCHAMP COULD NEVER"
coming soon
I know now, only after moving here, I am not the only one like me. If I had any chance at a feeling of NYC growing up, I was eagerly alive to welcome it. If I could share with others what I live now, and what I'd have loved to hear back then, then I'll walk with these street recordings that bonds New Yorkers to the unavoidable daily chaos around them, to anyone willing to listen.
My sound collages are a homage to my years spent growing up, dreaming to move from a life that felt at a standstill into one that proudly hosts universal creative dreams and auras of frustrating complexity, powered equally by the city and residents itself to maintain equilibrium.
MANY MORE SOUNDS COMING SOON.
