“Within the complex sound spectre of our environments and surroundings, sounds are always immersive, proximal, and constantly pushing through our bodies. There is a temporal flux with the sounds of our habitus and daily lives which most often goes unnoticed and ignored. My practice with field recording and engagement with the environment, heightened my awareness of my surroundings and sounds that inhibit this place- learning from them and using the environment as an instrument.
There is an underworld in which these audio environments aren’t accessible to us and is rich with sounds. ‘Resonant Links’ investigates this aural-dual infrastructure of the urban and sea life accentuating auditory perspectives and dimensions of these two worlds posing critical questions on our sonic habitus and ecologies.”
