Artist Statement:


    Palimpsestic uses documents of past electroacoustic improvisation as raw source material. The sessions centre around a form of multidimensional turntablism”, in which fragments of past sonic memories – captured moments of various sonic contexts from natural recordings to systemic glitches – are recalled, reframed and juxtaposed. Some are left untouched while others are scrubbed, frozen, or stretched into layers. The sonic matter is inflected with a process of manual sculpting that merges gesture with material.
