Monsters & Ghosts

These sonic entanglements attune to uncertainties in a collapsing world.

Here is a collection of magical figures, fits of vapors, states of disorientation, bewilderment and fear, winter mists, dark clouds of slight obscuration, apologies and gloom.

And hope.

And curiosity.

Listen in a loop.

Hauntings, like ghosts, are not immaterial.
Monsters, too, are a kind of announcement of the physical future: we’re here!

Vigilance is the job of the artist—to look, to notice—to listen.
