about

originally released in an edition of 1000 CDs in gatefold jacket
jennjoy gallery
1999

“view was first presented as a sound installation at the jennjoy gallery in san francisco in june of 1999. initially, i asked jenn, the director, to record the sounds of the view from one of the gallery windows: ‘sounds were recorded from ledge just above the radiator on various days and times in april.’ sometimes the window was opened, sometimes closed.

i used these recordings as both a compositional device as well as the actual sound source of the finished work. although i have fragmented looped and processed the original tapes a great deal, you are still essentially hearing the view. these four ‘possible landscapes’ were presented with headphones and a chair looking out of the window of the fourth floor gallery.”

4 tracks, all untitled.
