Le paysage moderne en basse fidélité n’a pas de perspective ;
ce sont plutôt les sons qui massent le spectateur de leur présence continue.

R. Murray Schafer

I am fascinated by the contemporary pursuit of relaxation and by popular, intuitive notions of what constitutes a relaxing environment. Relaxations will examine relaxation audio from a listening perspective, mimicking the patterns of new-age audio healing practice, while utilizing sound images from the local urban environment. The results will be available for your listening pleasure in 2004.
