Encounter

Coincidence granted me a chance to collaborate with the phenomenally talented artist Sarah Ronald.

She recently made a hand-drawn animation based on her haunting and ephemeral trail camera drawings, for which I was able to make a backing soundtrack using sounds from my field recording archives.

Path at Jericho Park

“Begin Anywhere." – John Cage

We are fetishists of the linear. We lust after straight lines, direct paths, & same-day shipping. Compelled to trace the path from A to B in real time, any drift or derivation is an affront, an insult. We imagine lines when instead we should imagine circles.

How much do we lose because we don’t know where to start?

John Cage’s advice – two small words – quietly frees us from our hesitation and confusion.
