PATHS OF THE ERRANT GAZE
IGITUR CARBON COPIES
These works tap into a lifelong obsession with recording everyday objects,
situations and moments. Recording and listening to things 'outside' is like
delving into the imagination already contained in matter.
Perception becomes a vice that constantly hallucinates realities.
Creating music from these recordings is like divining things found crawling
under rocks, whirling in shaded corners, traversing the atmosphere, propelling
through the ether. The ears focused as if in a gaze - but an errant gaze,
sleepwalking through the different layers of matter; a gaze disinterested
in possibilities, complexity, openness or totality; an errant gaze, melancholic
as well as pervasive, inviting contingency by ignoring it.
