    Sound

Artist Statement:


    Light Pollution works with sounds that are characteristic of digital audio production and playback mediums. Traditionally, listeners ignore the sounds produced by playback devices, such as the crackling of phonographs or the lossy .mp3 compression from YouTube. In Light Pollution, these by-products are presented in the foreground, allowing them to fully assert themselves as primary compositional materials. The work is comprised of sounds from old radios, broken turntables and other playback apparati. The materials were repeatedly subjected to a variety of digital-only processes.
