    This small run of cassette tapes contains 57 minutes of weather, chimes, and sustained tones bundled in a *five-foot-long scroll* full-color printed with the project's associative writing—a flag unfurling, a curling text, a tangible embodiment of what we do online endlessly.

    Music dubbed and re-recorded on cassette tape literally swaddled in reams of meaning and held together with baker's twine.

    Lovingly printed and assembled by Tiny Showcase:

about

One afternoon in the middle of North Carolina a storm rolled in. The wind picked up and the rain started falling and the front porch wind chimes, ordinarily gentle, almost inaudible, began cutting through the weather. Each tone called something forth, overlapping swirls of resonance - lives lived and lost, a million things to notice, fat drops of water in the loam. "sandhills music" is a humble effort to synthesize what was captured—the sounds, the tones, the associations, the cars driving by, the stories, the interconnected pangs, the unfurling scroll.

"sandhills music" was originally published in five parts via two newsletters - the long-running artist print house Tiny Showcase out of Providence and My Big Break, the weekly slice of heaven out of Troy, NY. it's a series of instances - field recordings from a porch in North Carolina dubbed and re-recorded onto cassette tape, wind chimes and human voices sampled and re-harmonized, five small essays that explode the meaning of each movement.
