about

Within the Violence of Fractured Light was composed from field recordings taken at multiple locations around Iceland in the summer of 2017. The work is arranged in four interwoven movements, each movement marked by the addition of recordings from a different location. The result becomes an evolving and complex sound field–suggesting a larger picture of the nuanced acoustic ecology and physicality of the island. Originally composed for a thirty-two channel high density loudspeaker array, many of the recordings were captured using non-traditional microphone techniques: hydrophones submerged in the silt of the leading edge of a glacial tongue or contact microphones picking up the barrage of waterfall via the vibrations in the adjacent basalt columns. The work was mixed for quadraphonic performance and into stereo for the digital edition by Burke Jam, and mastered by Lawrence English at 158 in Brisbane.

"Can there exist today a mysticism of the unhuman, one that has at its focus the climatological, meteorological, and geologic world-in-itself, and, moreover, one that does not resort to either religion or science?"
-Eugene Thacker
