Cenk Ergün: “In April, I recorded a brief sound and sent it to my musician friends. I asked them to listen to it and record a simple, spontaneous response of their own. 40 of them generously accepted my invitation. Each recorded without hearing others, most often on their phones. I made this piece using all recordings in their entirety, without any editing or manipulation. My goal was to create a picture in sound of this crazy and sad time, made up of isolated moments from the lives and homes of friends I dearly love.”
Well……this is quite a trip. Everything is cancelled or postponed, but for now our job is to stay safe and healthy. There are some virtual things in the works (as well as lots of cellophane experiments!!!). Take great care – we will all meet again!!…..xoxo
