Maps Of Nowhere consists of four long tracks distilled from 12 hours of field recordings made on a handheld cassette recorder - recorded August through October 2000.
Lots of shortwave radio tones and static; surreptitious recordings from my work environment in a hospital; quotidian, found and trash sounds: alarm clock, Hare Krishna chanting, public transportation, street & traffic noises, toys, children, family, howling maniac dogs, mundane conversations -- audio ethnographic recordings from the streets, alleys, sidewalks, parking lots, and fields of Gainesville, Florida -- all blended, multitracked and contorted into big concrete music noisy cut-up collages.
I employed chance process, aleatory and automatistic methods of dada and surrealism in the making of Maps Of Nowhere.
Constructed on a Fostex XR-5 4-track cassette recorder.
released 15 October 2000
