World Premiere/New Release!
Consisting of 16 sonic dwellings, each defined by a unique quality of vocally generated white noise, Through the Window and the Wood is a deeply immersive sonic experience, described by Michael Pisaro as “beautiful and transparent”. The concert will be followed by an artists talk with Andrea, Benjamin Brandes (my brother and the poet whose work is used for Through the window…) and myself.
To celebrate the premiere of this work—which has been four years in the making—a limited edition dual release of poetry by Benjamin and a recording of Through the window and the wood will be available. This beautiful release includes “49th and Chester”, a debut collection of 7 poems by Benjamin, as well as liner notes and a digital download for Through the window and the wood.
100 numbered copies will be available at $15 each. A digital download of just the piece and liner notes will be made available for sale via Edition Wandleweiser Records/Band Camp. Stay tuned!
