Binaural Recording of Spatialized Sound, 2019

(Headphones Recommended)

The strings in this piece account for every note of Woody Guthrie’s 1940 song, This Land is Your Land. The notation of the American folk song has been fragmented, re-oreinted and transposed before being recorded as a quartet and spatialized for 4DSound. The quartet is accompanied by deconstructed field recordings of hate speech and voices belonging to American poets.

This collaboration with composer Julie Zhu was created with support from MONOM Berlin Spatial Sound Institute and National YoungArts Foundation.
