about

Nulla was an apex at the time for the emotional translation that I had been striving towards. Nulla broke away from the drones of Meditations and Sanctum with particular emphasis on dissonance and fragmentation. This collection also has been the most convoluted of my work, which is a truly accurate interpretation, or perhaps representation, of that particular recording session and period in my graduate career. The deconstruction of my sound and mental state with such drastic discordance and contradiction in the fragmented repetitions allowed myself to dissolve and reform whilst releasing those frustrations and anxieties that were building again with lateness and mortality. “We assume that the essential health of a human life has a great deal to do with its correspondence to its time, the fitting of one to the other, and therefore its appropriateness or timeliness” (Said, 2006). Timeliness was not my experience in these moments. Thoughts raced while standing motionless and occupied my entire being to the point of exhaustion. A burden that was mine to grasp as it broke, buried, and overwhelmed. Though, “emanation is a process of one thing emerging from another” (McNiff,1998) and my performance material is that which emerges from within. Only, really, can I create out of my untimeliness. Death, mortality, and lateness are perpetual loops within myself and my work.
