The world is undergoing major shifting in social patterns and behaviors, which beckons a reformulation of engagement and proximity. Does the outside shrink? Or does it grow? Sound plays a role in this reconfiguration, as some sounds get lost while others are re-discovered. In which of the metaphors does the heart beat with the outside? Ecologically? Physiologically? Physically? Spiritually? These compositions blend and morph from sound art to pure field-recording to digital-collage, all soundscapes offering us the multivalent glimpse of inside and out, both of time (new/old) and space (foreclosed/ruptured).
