The Field upon which I Walk is the Song


Commissioned artwork for the group exhibition Místa chvění / Sites of Reverberation curated by Jakub Frank & Anežka Chalupová
8smička, Humpolec, Czech Republic, 04.03-21.05.2023

A series of four stereo compositions were implemented into the exhibition’s architecture. The sound emanated from underneath the listener’s body at four locations using contact speakers and shakers. Inspired by John Berger’s essay The Field, the pieces unfold through musical improvisation (tuba) and gentle instructions (spoken word), guiding listeners to explore and tune in their sonic memory and imagination. The title The Field upon which I Walk is the Song comes from the same essay.
