I will have some field recordings featured in an installation taking place at Judson Memorial Church, in New York City, as part of the Ear to the Earth 2012. The project is a sonic exchange in form of a multi-channel sound installation and a concert organized by Daniel Neumann and Gill Arno and featuring international phonographers and local sound artists and musicians.

Arno and Neumann receive recordings from multiple international phonographers that deal with the concept of Non-place as articulated by Marc Augé. These recordings are cataloged and arranged into a complex acoustic topology inside the Judson Memorial Church.
The installation will run in the afternoon and subsequently function as the starting point and the environment of the evening concert.
