about

Commissioned as an exhibition soundtrack for the Paul Auster Project, University Iuav, Venice, 2017.

____________________________________________________________
“To be inside that music, to be drawn into the circle of its repetitions: perhaps that is a place where one could finally disappear.”
—Paul Auster, City of Glass

Subtly subversive and evocative. Dreams within dreams. A flurry of images, like polaroids scattered on a city sidewalk, "It was as though he had melted into the walls of the city" is a winding path of transient moments exploring the urban structures, urban space, personal memory and mystery inspired by Paul Auster’s classic avant-pop novella, “City of Glass” (1985). The music unfolds across a wide spectrum of textures: piano, found sounds, marimba, harmonica, voices, guitar and electronic effects.
