Kinetic Static Natalie Cringle [Ozma Sound]

Even in stillness there is motion. This piece reflects all the static waves that are being emitted, whether we can hear them or not. Our perception does not always allow us to experience the full scope of activity and energies in our environment, but we know that in the background there is always a wealth of the tiniest happenings astir. Just as the earth rotates without our acute awareness of this motion, we come into day and night, and we know that indeed, though things may appear static to us, they are slowly moving. This piece is a collection of sounds that are sometimes inaudible but, if recorded, can be picked up and brought into our realm of awareness. Through stillness there is motion Through radio waves transmitting Translucent iridescent sound waves omitting such frequencies sometimes unheard Shades of grey emanating, undulating in the early dawn Static is kinetic propelled in slow motion veering through the dial Off the dial, it’s still playing Whether it’s heard or not In between telephone polls and electric lines Static is dripping off the land.
