about

for FAULT LINES, i played with the idea of subduction, the process by which one tectonic plate moves under another as the two collide. where the plates meet is the fault line. my translation of this process is about as literal as i could make it. each recording is a reading of one of two usgs documents dealing with the aftermaths of the 1994 northridge earthquake in southern california and the 1906 san francisco earthquake. both recordings are treated with decreasing low- and hi-pass filters, respectively. the fault line here, i think, is in the intelligibility of the texts. at first, only one of them is understandable, but at a certain point it switches. the piece is largely about tracing that line of perception and understanding between sources. the same subduction process occurs in the background field recordings, except the fault line is obscured by the intrusion of the recorded text. the change in environment is palpable at the breaks
