Fissures II (beneath the surface)


Fissures II (beneath the surface) was commissioned by the Weisman Art Museum for their Vanishing Ice exhibition in 2018. This work uses recordings of ice from Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon in Iceland and a lake in southern Minnesota. The composition cycles between these two recordings repeatedly, but never in the same way. Ultimately, the cycles gain enough speed to threaten the integrity of the ice sounds creating a digital ice storm.
