FUTURES, PAST

BY JULIE MATSON

This soundscape explores the erratic chronicles of the artist’s many childhood addresses; each move offering hope for a different future – a stable, secure future – inevitably running up against the challenges of a single-parent income in the capitalist culture of the 1980s. Sonifying the hand-drafted data of each location and address, this work layers emotional intonations with concrete sounds, providing an aural landscape of Matson’s FUTURES, PAST. (Nov 2014)

This was performed live at HTMLLES 11 in Montreal QC.

COLLATERAL MURDER (TRIGGER WARNING)

SOUND DESIGN BY JULIE MATSON

*part of the Drones Against Drones compilation which can be downloaded for PWYC donation here – drxnes.bandcamp.com/album/drones-against-drones

This piece is an aural reminder of the fight that has caused Chelsea Manning to spend much of her adult life behind bars.

Coinciding with the first National Drone Day, this compilation is a celebration of drones, the musical form, and condemnation of drones, the vehicles of murder.

All proceeds will go to the defence fund for Chelsea Manning, who traded her life and freedom to expose military atrocities. This album is dedicated to her. (May 2014)
