Erode – Brighton Festival

May 2015

As part of Madeline Flinn and Tim Humphries Gauge commissioned by Brighton Festival. A collaboration with sound artist Johanna Bramli on a centrepiece sound installation. Erode is a 24-channel generative surround sound work featuring recordings of local Sussex residents talking about their memories of the weather. The piece explored the ideas of the erosion of memories, together with the physical erosion of the Sussex coastline over time. It was created in Max MSP and over a duration of 20 minutes, it would gradually erode the various dialogue recordings using granular synthesis until all that was left was grains of sound washing away with the tide. The piece was featured on the BBC and received over 8,000 visitors in its 3-week residency.

Erode is an exploration into time, sound and the certainty of finitude
