Sound in Space: Mono

For my mono piece, I did a sonic exploration of my mind in transit. Oftentimes when I’m taking public transportation, my mind drifts deeply to thinking about different things that are occuring or have occured in my life. Sometimes I’ll write about these things in the notes app on my phone. Othertimes, I’ll just mindlessly drift further into my brain.

For this piece, I recorded a bit of the my train ride towards my therapy appointment. I then found one of the notes I had written during a commute and overlayed that on top of the sound of the train ride.

I decided to do this for the mono piece because I like the way that in mono everything sits in this one space oftentimes making these sound muddled or creating moments that are out of phase. This to me seems to add to the overwhelming nature of the piece.
