Memory | Dream | Encounter Micro-Commissions

In another thread of my Night Vision research and development, I responded to the main text through a series of improvised drawings. I photographed fragments of the larger drawings in process and used the images as a prompt, a connecting point, a spring board for dialogue.

In a series of micro-commissions, I invited composers/sound artists Ruth Wiesenfeld, Elisabetta Senesi, Dafna Naphtali, Julia Drouhin and Claire Docherty to create miniature sound compositions using the visual prompts. The umbrella title is Memory | Dream | Encounter. The sound compositions stand alone as individual works and as a collection.

On 31st August 2021 the six composers met in a virtual gathering to listen together, discuss the works and creative process. The collection of works were first broadcast on Radiophrenia at 9pm on 13th February 2022.

Many thanks indeed to:
