Possible landscape (for Donald Judd)

Steve Roden

Friday, September 17th, 12:00 am, Midnight Concert Series at Trinity Cathedral.

Possible Landscape (for Donald Judd) is created using field recordings gathered in Marfa, TX; as well as live acoustic objects, electronic objects and instruments, voice, and electronic processing.

Many of the field recordings were made on and in sites of Judd’s sculpture, and the landscape of Chinati during a residency in February of 2010. The recordings explore the audio characteristics of these spaces through their natural ability to transform acoustic sound activities through reverberation, reflection, etc.

For the live performance, these elements are brought together through improvisation, towards the live construction of a gentle audio landscape.
