: a palliative song cycle for bodies and stuff :
by Merlin Coleman

Merlin Coleman questions the uniquely-human practice of extracting resources out of the earth and disposing undesirables back into it, told through the complex stories of two particular places — a quarry and a landfill.

Using audio interviews as building blocks, the perspectives of activists, artists, ecologists, small business owners, garbage collectors, neighbors, administrative personnel and government officials directly related to these sites are illuminated. In an eccentric cycle of story, song, and sculpted soundscape, Merlin layers her voice with these voices- along with layers of cello, piano, field recordings and the sounds of objects. Both intimate and operatic, EXPLORATIONS of EXTRACTION and DECAY brings new poetic and musical meaning to the human voice, providing a portal into the broader phenomenon of extraction, waste and the cycle of life itself.

This evening-length work has been created by Merlin Coleman in collaboration with sound engineer Eric Oberthaler, and media artist Catherine Hollander. Video projections that poetically survey quarry sites, refuse, and the human body as landscape will precede the audio portion of the evening.

Audium: Sound Hour

Audium: Sound Hour

Audium: Sound Hour offers San Francisco sonic well-being in a new world. This curated, immersive environment aims to promote calm and wellness through spatial sound. Participants journey sonically through various sound scenes from around the San Francisco area; starting with the chaos of downtown, navigating through different neighborhoods, and ending at a much calmer destination at the edge of the city.
