On-site Event June 3rd

“Concrete” is a sound experiment striving towards thick, enveloping tones. Electronics, hardware and field recordings will stack to form a layered, immovable wall of sound.

Memory Tangled
“Memory Tangled” is a piece made up of shifting, illusive elements that wrap themselves around the listener. Sounds come in and out of focus, and recordings are sourced from many different periods of MacPhee’s life. Comforting, nostalgic tones are juxtaposed with cold and distant field recordings, creating tension and opposition.
