NEAR-FIELD: A WORK IN PROGRESS
What was last year only a figment of my imagination is now starting to take shape.
After a long hiatus exploring the world of commercial marketing communications, I'm finding my way home. There is nothing I have loved more than my years crafting stories with sound.
My ambition is to use this page as a place to display some of my new audio explorations using narrative, interviews, high fidelity digital field recordings, a bit of music and a few personal personal musings. This time around, I'm considering work in a relatively short form. Short pieces told as Kurt Vonnegut might have told them, stories about daily life re-examined...but with sound.
I'm calling them Near-field S-LOGS (tm). If you're a quick wit, you'll divine that part of it stands for Sound LOGs.
The term "near-field" has to do with the subject matter, things within my immediate field of view. No soaring crusades. Just the kind of things near all of us but that often go unnoticed...or ignored. I imagine them as personal audio letters from me to you about what I can see and hear in my woefully limited field of vision--things that make a difference to me, and maybe you.
This new catalog of work is just taking form. It is like an infant gestating.... or the gleam that was once in my father's eye...so to speak.
As time passes, you'll find more S-LOGs and a few other audio storytelling projects as well...you'll find it here for your consideration.
If you like the idea, send me a note of encouragement on the back of a ten, uh, twenty dollar bill! :)
(So you don't forget, do it tonight.)
