Update: The exhibition soundtrack, Confessional Music, is now available. Listen and download here.
My always inspirational studio-mate at Civic Center, Candy Chang, is off to Las Vegas for a project called Confessions. She’ll construct a thoughtful space for contemplation and respite at a hotel called The Cosmopolitan on the Las Vegas strip.
Visitors to Candy’s space can enter a confession booth and write an anonymous confession on a delicate wooden plaque. The plaque is then hung on the wall of the space, where other visitors can read, explore and contemplate. It’ll be a place for respite from the craziness of Vegas.
Candy invited me to compose a piece of music to soundtrack the space. The recording incorporates the sounds that comfort and bring a sense of safety to both of us: an old Finnish coffee machine, secluded hotel rooms, the voice of a loved one. The end result is something special, a long play 45-minute piece that draws you in and slows you down, setting the tone for a moment of peace and perspective.
You can visit Confessions at The Cosmopolitan from July 19 – August 12, 2012. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 6-11pm.
