Soundscapes and Sampling.

I am interessted in create something that can be listened to as much as it can be seen.



I recorded the sound of a digging machine that was digging. I recorded it because it reminded me of what it's like to dig through life. I played it on the sampler and twisted the sound a little. I tried to dance, move to the digging machine sound. The texture in the sound I created and what the frequency and vibration did to my body changed my way of listening in space. It was a new experience to fill the whole room with a sound I made and then move to it. Because I made the sounds myself I got a deeper understanding of them. This made my body respond in a new way. My inner images got clearer, and I went deeper in my creativity. When I filtered the sound my body reacted differently as the atmosphere changed. As I turned and twisted the knobs and faders, I turned and twisted my inner landscape.


I create sounds, abstracted from its original source. Sounds the mind cannot so easily categorize. I often start with concrete sounds from everyday objects that I have an immediate emotional response to; sounds that I can link to life experiences that have been very important to me, like the sound of me speaking in Tagalog and the sound of the overhead machine. I also record myself, playing the guitar and humming, the humming and whistling being linked to sounds used in meditation. 


In my work I also use everything that is available to me where I am at the time. I live-sample sounds from the space I perform in order to emphasize the moment and to connect with the audience. When I work with sound loops on the sampling machine I  improvise on top of a preset, composed structure. This merges risk with safety. The best way for me to improvise is akin to a Jazz-musician, that improvises over a set framework.
